Treat Box With a Hinge

Hi Crafters!  I just want to say a big thank you to you for being patient with me during the last couple of months of school that I'm going through right now.  I'm 1/2 way done w/ my project so I see the light at the end of the tunnel.  :)  I made these cute treat boxes for my mom's ladies at work for Valentines day.  The box is so cute!  I love how it worked out, I've never seen this type of box before.  It has a "hinge".  It's also going to be a very heavy picture post because I didn't have time to do a video.  OK, here you go...

This box was cut from the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut cartridge and was cut at 10".  I flood filled it from the All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge.  The image centered beautifully which made it perfect when lining up the sides.

The lid I flood filled from a solid color on the All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge.  This lid originally had a heart in the middle of it but I decided to keep it simple so hid the heart to make a solid box.

This is where I put the glue strips.  I used the Scor-pal tape.  LOVE this tape.  Anywho, I put it on the inside of the hinge and the outside of the two tabs on the lid.

For the box you put it on the outside of each tab.  There are 4 of them.

This is what the box looks like put together

And what the lid looks like put together.  Only put the tabs together first.

You will glue the "hinge" or straight edge of the lid to one of the sides of the box

This is what it looks like when the lid is open.  I love that the lid is connected to the box.  Such a fun box!

Here is a side view so you can see how the design lined up perfectly.  :)

To finish it off I put candy on the inside and tied a ribbon around it.  Kept it simple.

Thanks for stopping by!
