Box Card Tutorial By DT Nikkita Jain

Hello crafty peeps,

Nikkita Here, I am back again with another tutorial and it's a shadow box card.
So here is the project with step by step instructions and pictures.

  • First, take a cardstock of 300 gsm and cut into respective sizes (11"x 6.5" and 6.5" x 8"). 
  • Score the 11" x 6.5" piece at 5" and 6"
  • Score the 6.5" x 8" piece at 1/2" and 1.25". Flip and score the same way on all four sides and sniff off the corners as shown in the picture




  • Create the shadow box using tacky tape or any strong adhesive and keep it aside.



  • To make the base strong add layers of cardstock on both sides measuring 6.25* 4.75 on both sides
  • Add ribbon as shown for the box closure


  • Stick to the shadow box.
  • Decorate the box as per your choice , I have made the box as a baby shower gift for a mom to be and used papericious mom to be collection, I have fussy cut the elements and made embellishments, to give a 3D look to the embellishments I have added double sided foam tape at back of the elements. Complete the box as shown in the picture and the pretty gift box is ready.


  • Note - always take the pattern paper little smaller than the base for example if the box cover is 5*6.5 inches then pattern paper should be 4.75 * 6.25.

Bonjour Crafters,

Today we are so much thrilled to announce our Blog Coordinator for the Rainbow Craftykari Blog, Allow me to introduce the most talented and brilliant crafter in the Indian Craft Industry, Aditi Mahajan!! She is going to be face of Rainbow Craftykari. Let's Welcome her,


Hello Everyone

My mother- Sunila Mahajan and me- Aditi Mahajan, started Dots to Lines and our forte is home decor, mixed media and altered art. I have pursued MSc. in Clinical Psychology and Dip. in Special Education; and too to arts and crafts since school days and also practised art therapy when working with children with special needs. I have completed an art course from School of Visual Arts, New York.

Crafting has been a part of daily activities mostly in the form of various altered projects or making gifts. We run a home decor business by the name of Dots to Lines and we handcraft products using techniques of mixed media and decoupage. We are into paper-crafting, layouts, journaling, album making and scrapbooking. Our style of art and craft is a fusion of techniques and use of vibrant colours.

Under the name of Dots to Lines, I have been officially creating and crafting for two years now. Apart from selling products and blogging, I am a part of various Design Teams.

Today, I am glad to be a part of a team as a Blog Coordinator. This is a prestigious position and I hope to do justice to it. Rainbow Craftykari is a great store and has till date provided a great education programme for fellow crafters. I hope to add to its growth and success.
