Tealight Candle Card Tutorial

I had a couple of people ask me for a tutorial to the Candle box card I made last week. Now if you know me, I'm not fab at these sort of things, but I'll do what I can...I aim to get better!

Ok, so you need to start with a piece of card sized 37.5cm x 18.5cm

Place the card with the long side at the top onto your Simply Scored Board with the 'cm' scoring plate in position. Score at 1cm, 3cm, 7cm and 9cm. Then turn the card so the short side is at the top and score at 1cm, 3cm, 15.5cm and 17.5cm. Only score up to the horizontal 9cm score line. The following picture should help (I hope!)

The areas that are shaded need to be cut out, eventually.

Next, turn to the opposite short side, and measure 3cm in from each edge, then draw a line to the 3cm score line at the other end.
This is how it should look...

Now you can remove all the shaded areas, and cut the flaps as shown in this next picture...

The final score line is best done whilst the box part is folded up, but not stuck down. Push it right up to the edge of the Score It Board and score at 16.5cm to make your card part.

Now is the time to cut out the window in your box any shape you like, and decorate before sticking it down.

Then you just have the card part to make and you're done!

I really hope this helps you, and if you need any further help, please feel free to contact me or leave a comment and I promise to email you back.

Pop back later this week to see another, quite different version of this card :)
