Square Box Card Dies – Made Easy
Today we are showing you how to use the Square Box Card Dies to create amazing cards for you to send to your friends and family. You can create your own box cards by measuring and scoring, but you know we love to engineer die sets that take the guess work out of paper crafting. This unique die set is no exception! Choose your favorite papers and get your Square Box Card Dies ready. If you don’t have these dies, you can get them on sale on our website this week.
Come make this card with us!
First, we used the Square Box Card Dies to cut out our box using the Thankfulness Cardstock for our card.
Fold all of your score lines to start to form your box.
We also added another pattern from the Thankfulness Cardstock inside our box.
Add tear tape and roll the scored sides to form your box.
Once you have your side, press down to adhere. For extra strength, place something inside the “tube” and press down. Repeat on all sides, making sure that the tabs are tucked in.
We used an easel from the Flower Cart 3D Easel Dies to form our hinge.
Adhere the easel to a square piece of cardstock.
Tear tape goes on the top tab.
Place your box on top of the tab to create your easel card.
Use the decorative frame included with the Square Box Card Dies to cut and add an interior frame inside your box.
Flowers from the Thankfulness Papercrafting Kit highlight opposite corners.
We used the China Cabinet Embossing Folder with Dies to decorate all 4 corners.
We created a stopper with one of the dies from the Flower Cart 3D Easel Dies.
Now, this box easel card can stand at attention and greet its’ recipient.
There are different ways to create cards with the Square Box Card Dies.
You can make book-like cards that open to reveal a cute kitty!
Use an inlay technique to liven up your layers.
The Square Box Card Dies are perfect for creating birthday cards.
Combine various paper patterns to make a gorgeous card. Flowers and flourishes complete the look.
Add your box to the front of your card for an extra special card.
We hope that you are excited to create cards of all kinds with the Square Box Card Dies. This versatile set allows you to make fun, 3D projects like no other.

I want one of these so bad! Please consider me!
I’m a nice person and some people even say I’m kinda cute 🙂
Wow, these really create an impression. Beautiful works of art!!
I’m so glad I recently purchased the flower card. How perfect that there is an easel die that can be used on other cards.
I don’t know if the mini Empress will be given out to a lucky person on this blog. If do, please add my name. Thank you for all the imagination that you foster. Much ❤️ love

Absolutely beautiful! They will bring joy to everyone I gift the card to.
Another beautiful set of cards and inspiration. Thank you for such wonderful products which help me and my creative journey.
These are beautiful dies on my wish list as well. The tutorial was great and made me think that I can make the same sort of card with the Diorama card and make it into an easel with the Flower Cart kit easel die. Love the corner cover idea from China cabinet that I can use as well. It’s so pretty and I think it would be great for the office to hold a photo of loved ones on a desk. Thanks again for the tips. I agree with Constance….I’m here too…giveaway or not….and I love being here😊
Wow how clever and creative are these box cards. That would be so fun to make and decorate. I can see a lot of possibility for this.

I can’t wait to make something with the SQUARE BOX CARD DIE. I have the THANKFULNESS PAPERCRFTING KIT and love it, it has great sentiments, and the flowers and paper combo are perfect.
I will have to think about purchasing this soon! Lovely 🌹
Beautiful. I have ordered this die and can’t wait to make some of these. Have some great ideas, but now have to figure out how to mail one of these without them getting crushed. Your cards are always so beautiful, works if art, and I always love making them. Thank you.
Sara, I work for Michaels Craft Store in the card making and envelope area, there are little boxes in 3 sizes I used one for the 5×7 BOX DIE worked great, of course extra postage.
These are so more than just cards, they’re keepsakes. Lovely ideas to make for special times in someone’s life. Also, great to remind someone that you will always be there for them when they see that card on their display.
Thank you, Anna.
Love, love, love this die! Thank you, Anna, for another perfect staple for crafters. Posted last night in Community and FB page a masculine card I made with a musical twang of “Yellowstone”. This die has so many possibilities. Thanks, Anna, for the tutorial and inspiration. You knocked it out of the park with this die.
That is really a cool 😎 concept. That will be a nice die to add to my wishlist. Thank you 🙏
These boxes are really pretty!! Thanks for all your inspiration Anna.
Anna…these are so unique and beautiful…well done! I love dimensional cards and the options for this are both beautiful and endless. One thought…how do you mail them?
So much inspiration thank you Anna
Well, once again, you nailed it that is definitely a must have. Thank you.♥️

Perfect timing! I want to make one of these for my DIL’s 40th birthday which is coming up very soon. Thank you Anna❤️❤️❤️
Need to add this die set to my list to buy!

Good morning Anna!
I will add both of these items (square box dies and thankfulness cardstock) to my wish list! You make these cards so easy to make by your tutorials. But my credit card is a bit overwhelmed right now with all my AG purchases as of late 😂. Thank you for all that you and your team do for us card makers so that we can spread joy and blessings to all our love ones and people we care about in our lives! God’s Blessings to you all!
Wow! Perfect card and you made it look so easy to do! Thanks for the instruction AND inspiration!🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺
Anna, I read every blog that comes out but I don’t always comment. I see when you are giving things away there are always hundreds of comments. Well, I want you to know I appreciate your blogs and will start commenting each time if for no other reason but to let you know I read, I appreciate and I care. Constance aka Coni
Constance, I totally agree with your sentiment!
These would make a great frame for a Christmas window (looking in) or a winter scene (looking out). Lots of ideas flowing through my brain.
Thank you so much for all the little hints on how to do this….. I hope I feel well enough this afternoon to do it….Mfmurphy
I can see so may possibilities with the square box dies. Thank you!
The cards are exquisite! Flowers are delicate and colors mainly Pink just

in Museums so others can see and appreciate !
Anna I do not have the Dies but I am getting them now! This is a wonderful Idea. I am really excited about these dies. I can not wait to get them. Thankyou Anna!!!
This is stunning 😍!
I love this die set. It will be perfect for making Christmas ornaments. Before folding the top of the box you could punch one or two holes and string a ribbon through it to hang on the tree. What Grandparent would not want a photo of her Grandchildren to hang on the tree?
Your tutorials are truly informative and inspiring. Love ALL the examples.
Hello Anna and everyone I love this die and it’s is in my cart but it would be so great to win it
I AM SO GLAD I BOUGHT THIS DIE.
Good morning Anna and team! The box cards are exquisite! I especially love the idea of adding the box to the front of a card – so much dimension. The Thankfulness Paper Collection is a beautiful addition. Thank you so very much for the instructions to make amazing cards! Have a wonderful and blessed Thankful Tuesday! 💖 😊
Lovely! These are so much fun to make!
Truly beautiful in the making!🤩👏🏽👏🏽🙋🏻♀️💜tfs
