It's A Card, It's A Box, It's Supercard!

I found a card that's part of the box, and the box has a little drawer to pull out. Now how cute is that!!

I found the instructions HERE, by Maya Stenshagen. But because they were in metric, I had to come up with imperial measurements. (On a side note--not that metric is a problem, but I didn't even realize that my cutter only had imperial on it until I went to start cutting the paper in metric...LOL).

(Click on photo to enlarge.)

The card/box piece:

The drawer piece:

Decorate your pieces before gluing.

Glue your pieces together.
And you're done!

Here's one completed with the drawer inside.

The little tag is attached using 3D Foam Squares. I used Ivory Organdy ribbon on the tag, it matches the handle on the drawer.

Here's the card/box part opened, and the drawer pulled out. I used a Stipple Brush to apply Vineyard Berry ink around the edges, to soften the look.

Recipe: CTMH Paper Pack-More To Adore, CTMH CS-Colonial White, Cocoa & Vineyard Berry, CTMH Ink-Cocoa, Vineyard Berry, Black & Grey Flannel, CTMH SS-Treasure Life, Pewter Large Conchos, Ivory Organdy Ribbon, Coluzzle Tags Template, Martha Stewart Lace Doily Punch, 3D Foam Squares, Pink Rhinestones.
Okay, so what little boy wouldn't want a box to put a few little treasures in?

The airplane is attached with 3D Foam Squares, the words, and stars under the plane, are clear embossed.
The big star is outlined with Prisma Glitter.

The sides of the drawer I left blank (I didn't cover it with paper), so that it wouldn't be too snug to pull open.

The 'handle' is Black Grosgrain Ribbon attached using Button Nail Heads.
Recipe: CTMH Paper Pack-Stardust, CTMH CS-White Daisy, Honey & Outdoor Denim, CTMH Ink-Tulip, Black, Grey Flannel & Honey, CTMH SS-Flyin' High & Little Boys, Mini Black Brads, Clear Embossing Powder, Prisma Glitter, Star Punch, Swirl Punch, Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Button Nail Heads

And one for all the little girls to store their treasures too!

What little girl doesn't love flowers and hearts? I added some 'bling' by adding Rhinestones to the heart and flowers.

Here's the inside, I wrote 'This Treasure Belongs To:' on the tag. The 'handle' is made from CTMH Hollyhock Ricrac Ribbon.
Recipe: CTMH Paper Pack-Daydream, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Tulip, Spring Iris & Outdoor Denim, CTMH SS-Annotations & All My Love, CTMH Ribbon-Hollyhock Ricrac, Prima Flowers, Rhinestones, Dollarama Punch, Flower Punch, Corner Punch

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I do! I sure had a lot of fun making them.

I love all your boxes! I was trying to think of something for my granddaughter's orthodontist and it is hard to think of something "manly" but this is perfect! Thank you and also for converting to inches, even though we were supposed to learn metric measurement in school I never did.

Do you have a You Tube page? I so want to make the card that is a box but I have to be honest I am bad with math and often have a hard time reading a patterm
