Picket Fence Card Holder Box















This was a super simple project I made using the Martha Stewart Embossed ZigZag punch and white cardstock. For the wood grain I swiped my Bashful Blue and Going Gray ink pads down the front and added lines with a black Stampin' Write marker. Leaves are in Old Olive (SU Embosslits Little Leaves), Three Flower Punch in Banana with clear microbeads in centers.
Cardstock measurement for box is 5 3/4" x 11". Score at 4 3/4 and 6 1/4". Cut a strip to run lengthwise and adhere to box bottom and side with some added tabs. This box is perfect for holding A2 size cards or whatever else you can fit in there!
