Box Cards Part Two – BUTTERFLIES!!!
Several months ago, I showed you the first batch of box cards I made.  Box cards are greeting cards that fold flat for mailing, but open up to be multi dimensional.  Since I had such good luck with the first batch, I tried making another, more complex box card & here’s how they turned out.  Although I recorded this video over a mon [...]
