Making Soap Box Greeting Cards

Soap Box Greeting Cards ~ How to make

Soap Box Greeting Cards made easy and fast by following these simple steps.  A soap box greeting card is a gift (your soap) and a greeting card combined into one package. First you need a template that fits the boxes you intend to use. I have made files for the most common two box sizes. After you have a file print it off on heavy card stock. Flimsy does not work very well.  Depending on the color of the card you may want to choose white, off white, or kraft paper to match a kraft box.

**Bonus Tip – If you are out of card stock supplies, or just want to try a greeting card before buying more paper, take a file folder…you know the kind that hold papers in a file cabinet. Trim this file folder so that is the same size as a standard piece of paper and print your Soap Box Greeting Card on that! The weight and feel of a file folder is very similar to a good card stock paper.

Here are the steps needed to help you make soap box greeting cards perfectly the first time and every time.
