The box tutorial

Hey, thanks for being so patient with me. I have never done a tutorial before but I've had quite a few requests for the cute little box I made the other day. So here goes...Step 1: Cut out 2 pieces of Sizzix XL box #2
Step 2: Place the 2 pieces back to back overlapping only the flap part of the box. Place a Spellbinders petite oval small die in the center where the flap is supposed to bend over. But don't bend the flap. It is better to cut the 2 pieces together so the oval is centered so when you attach both boxes together, it matches. This photo should be vertical but it keeps posting horizontal.
Step 3: Here are what the 2 pieces should look like.
Step 4: Assemble the 2 boxes but do not bend the top flap over. Put two way tape under the 2 little flaps on the sides to hold it down in the box.
Step 5: Place two way tape on the backside of one of the boxes in these areas so it holds both boxes together.
Step 6: Place the 2 boxes back to back. And you are done. It's very fast to make this box.
Hope you are able to follow these instructions. Email me if you have any questions. And now for a giveaway, send me a link or photo of your box and 1 week from today, I will throw your name in a basket and have my husband pick a winner for me to send a stamp set to. I'm anxious to see what you all come up with.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!!!
