Welcome to this month’s Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop. For the month of July we are all featuring 3D gift giving projects. I have chosen to create a greeting card holder. It comes together very easy and is simple enough to duplicate.
During the month of July, I will feature more ideas and tutorials for 3D gift giving. Be sure to check back often!
Scroll down for the list of blogs featured in this hop. I am thankful to be included in this talented group of crafters and hope you like all of the projects offered. Be sure to visit as many of the design team member’s projects as you can for more great ideas!

Directions to Create a Card Holder Box
First, cut two pieces of card stock or patterned paper to 6 1/2″ wide by 7″ high
Next, score the fold lines (along the width of the paper) at 4 1/2″ and again at 6″
Now rotate the paper to the left and score at 1 1/2″
OPTIONAL DECORATIVE TOP
The open top edge is an opportunity to customize the 3D gift giving box. I used Seasonal Layers Thinlits die to get the scalloped edge. For placement of the die on the paper, view the tutorial YouTube video at links below.
Burnish (or fold over and press) all of the score lines. Using Paper Snips, cut along the score lines where the paper will fold and be glued in a different direction. For example, a score/fold line is a corner and the two flaps of paper we have created will end up overlapping when glued in place. After cuts are made, it’s okay to add Tear and Tape Adhesive in the areas that will close joints.
Attach the two units together by first placing one of the side flaps to the other piece’s straight edge. Now it’s okay to do the same to the other side. Now you’re box is closed on all sides except the top and bottom. Since the top will remain open, close up the bottom and assure the adhesive stays under the closed flaps. The greeting cards with matching envelopes can now slide into the box with room to spare. I placed four cards with stamped matching envelopes and there was ample room.
3D Gift Giving
This box as well as the cards inside, share a common Daisy floral theme. The same patterned paper that the box is created from is also used on the cards. Also the colors of the stamping are in common. For a look at the cards I created for the box, come back to my Blog tomorrow for another tutorial!
Creating Kindness through sharing a handmade 3D gift is one of the truly genuine ways to share of piece of yourself with a loved one. The Creating Kindness Design Team are sharing ideas this month that are in the spirit of caring and sharing. How do you share kindness with those in your life? I’d love to hear from you!
