Isn't it cool! To me it reminds me of a tissue box with a card sticking out. But of course, it is way cooler than that. It even folds flat for postage.

Before I describe how to make it, here is a side view so you can truly appreciate how unique it is.

To make it, you make two separate parts and then stick them together. First make the box by taking a piece of card stock which measure 4 ¼”x 11". Score it along the line side at 1", 2 ¾”, 3 ¾”, 5 ½”, 7 ¼”, 8 ¼” and 10". Fold and burnish all the score lines. Now you can decorate the panels if you wish. I covered mine with Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper. You only want to decorate the two panels either side of the middle score line. The others won't be seen.

Now you need to make a separate tag, that's the bit that is sticking up. Make sure it is narrower than the box. Mine is 4" wide. Decorate the tag as you wish, but hear in mind, the bottom inch won't be seen. 

Now cut a slit either side of the middle score line on the box. This is where the tag will slide through, Make sure it is wide enough to accommodate your tag if you have used dimensionals on it.

Lay your box flat with the decorated panels facing up. Put some tear and tape on the two end panels. Turn the box over. Fold one of the end panels in and remove the tape. Slip the tag through the slit and attach to the taped panel. Fold the other end panel up and remove the tape, and secure to the other side of the tag. Your tag should now be sitting up straight through the slit and held in place with  panels taped either side to it.

Your free standing card is complete. Decorate the box if you wish. I added some flowers and a small embellishment.

Now that you have seen my creation, make sure you visit the rest of the team to see what they have created.
