The Music Box – Karen Hasheck

I had so much fun creating this box card for a 3D class I am teaching using Tonic Studios musical dies line! There are many tutorials available to show you how to make a “card in a box” or box card, so I am not going into detail on how to do that. I started with a larger black “card in a box” that folds to mail. I have seen a box card on Pinterest that featured the Tonic Studios jukebox die on the front, but am unable to find the original post to give that designer credit. I cut the Jukebox Jive die in black and a back in gold mirror card and attached to the front of the box card. I die cut the Treble Clef die out of black cardstock and added Nuvo Indian Gold Mousse before attaching it to the first inside tab. Then I die cut the Electric Guitar out of white cardstock and attached it to the second inside tab. The back of the box card has the musical score of Happy Birthday to You printed on red paper and one musical note.

I applied a strip of two sided tape to a piece of card stock and then dumped on some Ruby Red, Glitter Gold and Charcoal Black Nuvo glitter one at a time in different areas of the sticky piece. After burnishing in the glitter, I die cut the Piano Melody and applied to the right side with a couple glue dots. I also attached another black Musical Note.On the left side flap, I attached Dance Tribute after cutting him twice and offsetting the black and gold mirror die cuts slightly. It is time consuming to make one of these box cards, but well worth the time spent when you see the look of delight on the face of the music lover you give it to!Tonic Signature
