Tip: Making your first card in a box will take a little time, but it will be worth it. Decorating is personal, and placement is key; you want to be sure your box closes flat and you have very little showing outside the box area.
This will allow it to fit into an envelope for mailing. It is made easier by using Xyron adhesive.
