A couple of months ago I made a quilling card for a friend’s wedding. Here is a reminder of the card [and of how I wrapped the boxed card]. In addition to being pretty they are fragile cards. So I decided to make a box to protect the card, I call it my pallet box. It’s easy and super quick Here are the steps to make the pallet box:
1. Cut 2 pieces of chipboard 2.5 cm [1 inch] wider and longer than the card itself [2 x main panel]. Cut strips [6-8] of chipboard 0.5 cm [1/2 inch] wide by the length of the main panel.
2. Glue [PVA glue] the strips of chipboard on the edge of the main panel as shown, building up the strips.
3. Repeat on opposite side.
4. Place but do not glue the top panel and insert card [I applied a little pressure with my embroidery floss box]. This will give you an indication if you have sufficient space to slide card or need to build the sides more – in my case as shown I added one further strip [total of 4 on each side].
5. Once the desired depth is achieved glue the top panel and clamp with alligator clips.
