Bunches of Beautiful Boxes with Gini Williams Cagle

Want a quick and easy way to spruce up a deck of playing cards?  How about a custom box?  The original Lexicon Of Love tutorial, by Leslie Miller , but my updated version uses the latest edition of the Scor-Pal making this cute idea even easier!  The patterned paper from Webster's Pages seemed like the perfect choice, while adding just a slight bit of humor

Cardstock 5 3/4 x 7"
Patterned Paper
 (2). 2 3/8 x 3 3/8
(2) 5/8" x 3 3/8

Cut the cardstock to 5 3/4" x 7". Line the 7 inch side along the upper fence, and in the upper left corner.  Score at 3/4", 3 1/4", 4" and 6 1/2".  Turn the paper so the 5 3/4" side is aligned in the upper left corner and score at 3/4", 4 1/4" and 5".

Trim the flaps as shown.

Add the patterned papers as shown, and assemble with the Scor-Tape.

 Add some playing cards, and you are all set for some fun!
