Spring box card

When is a box not a box ....when it's a card .....
I think this is a great idea , 3d paper crafting but it folds totally flat and fits into an envelope. My box card is a Silhouette America cutting file , I cut on my cameo machine , but there are some tutorials on the web to do by hand. I've used up lots of differnt papers , the blue stripe is by craft creation (been in the draw for years ), the pink is first edition bird song (another old pad ) and the embellishments bazil and craft paper.
I'm going to make quite a few Easter box cards , some for family and one for our mantelpiece. I think they are so cute and a bit different , easy on the postal costs too .

Oh that's brilliant Jane. Got to confess I didn't quite 'get it' when you were talking about it the other day. Such a clever design and such a nice surprie for the person getting it.
