Picture of Make a box out of a greeting card!
 Hey, I'm going to show you how to make a box (about the right size for a gift card or jewelry) out of a birthday/christmas or any type of greeting card.
I learned this from a lady from a charity organization who makes these for gifts and such.

Step 4: Snip snip.

 Okay, now cut along the line shown in picture 1 down to the line that goes all the way across the width of the card. Do that to all four corners (pictures 2 and 3). Simple!

Step 5: I fold...

 Okay, take your ruler, and line it up with one of the long lines, then press the ruler down and bring the long side up, see second photo. Do this on both sides. (see third photo). Then fold all the rectangular tabs in, make sure the edges all line up. (see fourth photo). Then, line your ruler up with the first of the shorter lines on one end, and fold like the long sides. (See fifth pic). Then do the second line, (see sixth pic) you should have two folds, now do the other end. made it!2 months ago

My first one was kind of slow going, but now that I have it figured out I will be repurposing all these Christmas cards I've been saving for "kids crafts" (and never used them!) into gift card boxes!! My storage closet thanks you!

This is great! I kept all of my greeting cards. This is an excellent way to use them.
