Asian Birthday Box Card

Here's a Box Card with an Asian theme.  This was made for a milestone birthday (91 years old).  Paper used: Stampin-Up Cherry Cobbler card stock, Recollections Black.
Each of the flaps are stamped and have the EK Success Modern Cube Slim Punch embellished on the bottom.The Kanji words (which say Happy Birthday in Chinese) is from Mark Richards Peel Off's Outline Stickers #3498 Gold. A 1" Circle Punch in Stampin-Up Cherry Cobbler is adhered on top of a 1 -1/16" Circle Punch in Recollections Black card stock. Adhere the words on top a strip of acetate with mini glue dots in the back of each word and then attach with a mini glue dot to the back (1st of three) floating strip.  Fortune cookies are stamped and cut out for additional embellishments.  In addition, firecrackers were made using card stock and twine - roll and then decorate using splatters of Gold Smooch. Arrange and adhere to clear acetate strips with mini glue dots.  Love that this card folds flat - Finished 6" x 5".

To make this box card, a 6" x 11" cut card stock was used. Then score 2-7/8" each section + 1/2" is for the sticky tape to make the box. Rotate the card stock and score 2-1/2" for the flaps. Cut three strips 3/4" x 3-7/8" long for the strips, scoring 1/2" on each end.
Hope you enjoyed this box card and am inspired to make your own, too.
