Happiness is Homemade Gift Box

Anita here with a quick and easy tutorial to put together Lori's Matchbox Drawer Card Cooking.  You can find the cut files here in Lori's store and here in the Silhouette Design Store.  This is such a cute little box and you can fit many little treats in it.  This would be a great thank you gift for a good deed done.
Here are the pieces.  I cut one extra of the rectangles because I wanted my box top to use the lovely Happiness is Homemade Echo Park paper line that Lori designed.  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.
Here is  the box piece.  You are going to want to fold it on 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 box is done.
Fold the outer wrap for the box on the perforation lines and glue the tab to the end of the strip.

Here are the pieces for the card top.
You are going to want to fold in half  the 3" piece of ribbon and put 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.
