A graduation wishes card does not have to fit in an envelope. Why not make one with a custom made box to house it? The instructions for making a banner card by using an accordion fold to fit it into the box are on another page, but the instructions for making a footlocker box can be found below.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined".
~Henry David Thoreaux
When I wanted to make a card for someone special who had just finished their basic training in the military, I immediately thought of my Dad's old footlocker. All of my young life he had dragged that footlocker with us as we moved around the world. It seemed to be something he attached special importance to.
Naturally, my thoughts next led to me think how I could make a footlocker out of cardstock. I don't know if soldiers still use these but it's a novel way to present a handmade greeting card anyway, right?
You may also like to use a small circle punch.
I also made a banner card to go into this box.
If you make a custom made box to give someone special graduation wishes or for any other reason, I hope you will let me see it. I just love seeing what you make. It gives me ideas as well to see your work and that keeps paper crafting fresh and fun.
Do you make 3-d PaperCraft items? I'd love to see your work. Please do share below.
