Tea Box and matching gift card, cricut style



A few days ago I started making these little tea boxes (see two posts down)- a couple people have asked for the DS version of the cut, so I thought I'd post this one that I did with DS, along with the 3 x 3 matching card. The card is done using the "new" ds nudge buttons so it can easily be resized to larger - but remember to resize the envelope too. The trick to resizing envelopes is just using the cursor to move the envelope over your card front (in the case it is the center square only) and use the handles to resize so that the center portion of the envelope is just a bit bigger than your card - don't make it too tight or the embellishments won't fit. I think you could do up to 4 x 4 but bigger than that and you will have to do the envelope on a different page, or just delete it and use one you already have. If you cut the way it is out of one sheet of design paper you can have the inside of your envelope match your card - fun! For the inside pull out of the card, I just cut the card insert out of scrap paper - it should be just a hair under the final card size - for this one just a hair under 3 x 3 - if you make it too small it won't stay put, too big and you can't slide it in and out. The belly band is just a strip of the same scrap - ribbon works well for that too. I think this one will be for a teacher :)
Oh, and one more thing about the cuts - For the box I used george for the shape, and Storybook for the little cutout. If you don't have storybook you can delete the center cut out and still use the file, or have fun adding a center cut from a cart you have! The card and env is from Plat.Schoolbook
