Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature some quick and easy cards or projects that take minutes to make, but look like you spent hours.

I cannot believe this is my first box card and how really easy it was to make. There are lots of instructions for making this type of card posted on the Internet, but I found a way to use my Silhouette to do most of the work.

Lori Whitlock has created several box card designs that you can choose from at the Silhouette on-line store and I love them all. I used the box and star cut from her box card birthday file and replaced her other cuts with chipboard stickers from my stash.

Here is a close-up showing the cute chipboard stickers and how they pop up out of the box.

Its ready to go! This card measures 4.25x5.5 when complete and folds flat to fit in an A2 envelope. Adorable!

I love Lori’s original file and that I can change it to suit my needs. Click here to order an SVG version of Lori’s Box Birthday card. The great news is that you can cut her SVG file, using a variety of cutting machines.

Have a great week and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Beautiful! I have made the explosion boxes before, but never a pop up one like this! It might have to be a project for my next crafting day! Thanks for sharing.
