Use It Up Designer Series Paper Card Box

This was the other project I showed at our Stamp Share Monday night. Another way to use up Desginer Series Paper- a card box!
 
 
The finished box- 4 5/8 x 5 7/8 x 1"

 
Card stock base, DSP cover, ribbon and card stock to decorate

 
A 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card fits perfectly- so will an envelope (I just checked to make sure- didn't think of it when I took the pictures)
 
Dimensions:
Card Stock base: 6 1/2 x 7 3/4, scored at 1" on all sides
DSP cover: 6 5/8 x 7 7/8, scored at 1" on all sides
 
To come up with those sizes, I started with the size of a standard card, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, and added 1/4 inch to both (4 1/2 x 5 3/4) to have the finished size of the bottom fit the card and envelope, then added 2" (1" for each side).
 
I used a stamp from the new A Round Array set with 7/8" Scallop Circle (Spring catalog), 1" Circle, 1 1/4" Scallop Circle (Holiday and Spring catalogs) and Fancy Flower punches and 5/7" Organza Ribbon. 
 
Tomorrow I'll share the card that's sitting in the box- it's made with the new photopolymer set!
