Baby Boy Card Box

Hi all! It's Sandie here and today I am sharing a baby boy card and box I made recently for a friend. The box is a standard base and lid type box and I decorated the top and sides to coordinate with the card.

To make the box you just need 2 squares of white card plain 250gsm. The size will depend on the size of your card.

  • If your card is 5" (130mm) you will need 8.25" square for the base and 8 5/16" for the lid.
  • Score both pieces of card at 0.75" and 1.5" on all four sides. Cut away the outer 3 sections on each corner leaving one section from which to make a tab, as shown below. I like to taper the edges of the tabs and outer flaps for a neater fit.


  • Apply double sided tape to the outside of the tabs and the inside of the outer flaps.
  • Remove the tape backing from the tabs and adhere to the inside of the box as shown. Remove the tape backing from the flaps and fold inwards, covering the tabs.






  • Repeat the steps for the box lid.
  • Decorate the lid as desired
