Time for the FCCB Thursday Tutorial -DVD gift box and card

Hello all you crafty people. It's time for another Thursday Tutorial and do I have a great project for you today. This week at FCCB the challenge is "Present Time"- you are asked to make a gift , gift packaging or use a gift cut. I am always needing good ideas for gifts and packaging so I am eager to see what everyone makes.
Today for the Thursday tutorial I want to share a project from a fellow FCCB Design team member Jamie from Scrapqueen sent me a great DVD gift box card in one that I want everyone to see. Jamie designed this herself and I for one have a definite need for these with all the DVD's I give at Christmas and other special occasions.

Here is the finished product with the DVD peeking out.


2 pieces of 12x12 pattern paper

DVD Cover Directions
1. Cut one piece of 12x12 to 7 ¾ x 12
2. Score at: ½”
5 7/8”
6 3/8”
11 ¾”

1. Fold your score lines
2. Add adhesive to back the ¼ fold (or use tape as this will be cover up)
3. Use your DVD box to secure the cover at adhesive line. (this is the point at which you would use tape if you wanted to) Note: this is a tight fit

Cover/Card Directions
1. Cut the other 12x12 paper down to 7 ¾ x 6 ¾
2. Score at: 5”
5 ¼”
5 ¾”

3. Fold at score lines, inwardly
4. Add adhesive from the 5” score line to the shorter end of the paper (5” to back flap) be thorough with your adhesive
5. Attach cover to DVD case. The 5” to the 5 ¼” should be adhered to the front of the DVD cover, this will allow it to open up like a card.
6. Decorate as desired. I used the Storybook Cartridge for my cover embellishment and for the journaling spot on the inside of the card.
Card outside
Card inside with place to write

Now isn't this just a great package and card in one? Thanks so much for sharing this with us Jamie. I hope you will leave some love for Jamie here. I am so happy she was willing to share this wonderful idea for our Thursday Tutorial. Definitely making some of these.
