Happiness is Homemade Gift Box with Anita

Anita here with a quick and easy tutorial to put together Lori’s Matchbox Drawer Card-Cooking.  You can find this cut file here in Lori’s store and here in the Silhouette Design Store. It is such a cute box and you can fit many little treats in it. It would be a great thank you gift for a good deed done.

First, cut the pieces of the box.  I cut one extra rectangle because I wanted my box top to use the lovely Happiness is Homemade collection from Echo Park Paper.  I also used one of the die cut cardstock pieces from the matching Ephemera kit. I love to bake so this line was made for me.

This piece is for the main box.  Fold it along the score lines and glue it together.  It is easiest to glue the tabs in place first and then glue down the ends as you will see in the photos below.

Here the completed box.

Fold the outer wrap for the box on the score lines and glue the tab to the end of the strip.


These are the pieces for the card top.

To make the tab,  fold a 3″ piece of ribbon in half and glue it between the two layers of paper when you glue the inner piece inside the card.

You can see where I put the Die Cut from the Happiness is Homemade Echo Park Collection by Lori.  It’s so cute.

Here is a view of the slide for the box.

And here we have the completed pieces.  This box went together very quickly and Lori has so many different designs for many occasions to choose from.  Lastly, you will embellish your box with the cute baking tools that are part of this cut file.  Hope you have a chance to get creative today.
