Lunch Box Cards Remind Them that You Love Them

Lunch box cards tucked into their lunch let them know you that love them and give them the encouragement to finish their day. This is a great project for the beginner!  Inspired by the Card Maker Success Summit.  I saw a similar project and thought “I have never made those before” so here are my designs.

All the Lunch Box Cards
All the Cards

These little motivation cards don’t need envelopes, just love.  If you are a beginner these cards will familiarize you with scoring and drawing on you cards.  They are also a great way to use your scraps that I know you have laying around!

You will need:
Paper Selection for the Lunch Box Cards

The great thing about these cards is that the color isn’t really important as long as the pen shows up.  The small cards do look better with two sides paper.  But you can use patterned or plain paper.  Just coordinate the colors.  If you need help with color coordination, check out “Coloring Your Designs” in the Resource Library.

Cutting the Lunch Box Cards

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used several different markers.  Just make sure it goes with the color paper you choose.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.   

If you are using the SVG files be sure to follow all the directions in the instruction document in the zip file.  The card will not cut the proper size, score or write properly if you don’t.  This is a glitch in the Design Space Program I wish they would fix.

Assembling the Lunch Box Cards

These cards are amazingly simple.  Remember to first re-crease the score lines.  The rest of the assembly you can get by looking at the pictures above.


And your Lunch Box Cards are done!  If you have any questions or problems please email me.
