Scalloped Card Box/Drawer

Some of you have emailed me asking for directions for the scalloped card box/drawer that is pictured in my Mother's Day gift set post using the Cheep Talk stamp set. Sorry it has taken me so long to do this. The end of the school year is almost here and I've been super busy with end of year activities and making wedding favors. But here they are, and if you have any questions feel free to email me again.

Card Stock You Will Need:

2 Pieces @ 6” x 6 5/8” – both scored at 1” and 5 5/8” (6 5/8” side). This will be the part the drawer slides into.

1 Piece @ 9 7/8” x 8 ½” – scored at 1”, 2”, 6 ½”,& 7 ½” (8 ½” side) - scored at 1”, 6 7/8” & 7 7/8” (9 7/8” side) This is the drawer

1. Score all your Card Stock as directed above. To orient you, the drawer is the 9 7/8” x 8 ½” piece. The box consists of the two 6 x 6 5/8” pieces. A half circle punch is used at one end of the drawer to add a small opening to pull out the drawer.

2. On the opposite side of the “half-circle”, you are going to punch the eyelet border using the eyelet border punch along the ENTIRE side! This will end up being the fold over part of the drawer. Using this punch upside right gives you the best punches possible and enables an easy clean up. Move the paper along until the scallops line up – the silver will show through.
