CraftWell DT: Telephone Box Card



This is my next post for Craftwell. For this post I decided to make a Telephone booth box card for my son's 16th birthday. He is wanting a phone for a while, but he didn't have the real need for it and we are delaying the social media as long as we can. Thus, I decided to play a trick on him.

When I saw the terrific telephone treat box kit by Tonic, I knew that it was the perfect die for what I had in mind. I love the English Telephone booth and the color combination is just perfect. This die is meant for a treat box, so I tweaked it a little to make it a box card, by trimming the topper and glue it directly to the top flap.

Some tips to work with this dies:

Use the foam tape included to hold the dies in the acetate to hold in place when die cutting the sentiments inside the rectangle:


I cut an strip large enough to add the "16" crown as a popup element, but forgot to add the extra fold to make it pop up on its own:

This box is so cute that can also hold a tea light LED candle inside:

I was able to fold the box car to put it inside of an envelop with a note, "Enjoy your phone":

Here is my son reaction to the card:

At the end, I decided to make the little base included in the kit to use as cake topper as well:

I followed all the amazing instructions included with these dies and kit. This is the first kit that includes such detailed instructions; no need to hunt for videos in the web. Love it
