St. Patty's Card in a Box

I used two different printables on this Card in a box: St. Patty's Tickets Hang Tags and I used some of the St. Patty's Collage Sheet that I used for last week's rocker cards.

 
You get 2 tickets of each design for a total of 10 tickets.
 
You get 2 of each design in 2 different sizes for a total of 12 hang tags. I used 3 of the larger images and 3 of the smaller images.

 
If you have never made a card in a box before, here is a Card in a Box Tutorial on youtube for you to watch. They really are rather easy once you make the first one.
 
I printed my printable files onto white cardstock and cut them out then I did my cutting and measuring for the card in a box. The card itself is cut on a cream cardstock, layered with some green and cream stripped paper on the bottom sections and a Kraft paper with green stripes on the upper sections.
 
Assemble the card, use 3 of the large images on the bottom sections of the card, the tickets on the upper sections. I cut out a few shamrocks with my Cricut, first going around the edges with my Cricut Ink, then with the blade. I used a large shamrock to mount a small image onto the embellishment support in the back.
 
 
I used some scraps from the Kraft paper for the supports rather than the ones cut from the cream cardstock because the Kraft paper was much sturdier than the cream.
 

 
I used one of each ticket and sprinkled a few shamrocks around. This does fold semi-flat for mailing. Box cards can be used for almost every occasion and are a lot of fun to make.
 
Thank you for stopping by to take a look.
