DIY Gift Book Box with Waterfall Photo Album

Today we made a gift for our super Mail lady, she is very patient with us and never complains when we haul out 50 or 60 packages for her to somehow cram in her car. This is just a little gift box that we will be using to place her gift certificate in, and then she can use the box later for her photos as it has a waterfall photo album inside.

Below are the measurements, hope you enjoy.

YouTube Video Tutorial:

1 sheet of card stock 12x8 inches, on the 12" side score at 1/4", 4 7/8" 7 1/8", 11 3/4". Turn one turn and score on the 8" side at 1" and 7 1/2"

Fold and burnish all score lines

Cut up on center score lines just to the vertical score line as shown in the video. Wedge out just a little on both.

Cut off small boxes on the ends at and angle as you will not need these. This is where the score lines create the box.

Glue down the 1/4" edges and fold up center piece and glue inside. This is not necessary but does add strength to the box.

Do the same on top to keep from having raw edges.

Cut 2 pieces of cardstock at 6x7 inches, on the long side score at 1/2", 3", 4" 6 1/2" turn and score at 1" and 5". Do this same thing on the other piece, this creates your boxes for the inside. Cut your squares at the corners off as you did on the large piece. Fold down and glue the 1/2" pieces down to keep from having raw edges. Glue the sides together forming your boxes.

For the cascading mini album you will need a piece of paper cut at 3x9 3/4" score at 4 3/4" and 5" on the long side. Cut 8 pieces of paper at 2 3/4x2 3/4" to create the cascade, score at 1/4" on all pieces on just one side. mat as you wish and assemble as shown in the video.

Decorate and you are finished.
