Matchbox - Tags Bags Boxes and More Series #3

I like to use the matchbox on pages 123 (outside) and 124 (inside) of the Cricut handbook for packaging when I gift one of the jewelry sets I make. My box (the inside) is cut a little smaller than the outside of the box. If you are looking at the overlay it is button 42 (outside) and 43 (inside).

This is my finished box. I used a simple belly band on this one to wrap my box and a little bit of ribbon pull to open the drawer.

I used part of the pattern paper for the main piece of the belly band, then added the blue card stock and two pieces of punched orange card stock on either side. I start out with a 12' for the length, build up my layers, then score to fit the outside of the box and finally cut the belly band. I did some trimming of the border so I do not overlap the lace pattern.

I used a circle punch and a hole punch to attach the ribbon for the pull. Inside the box I have another strip of orange to cover up the ribbon knot.

This is my box all put together, I just need to add the jewelry set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you for posting the Cricut page numbers for the matchbox. I've been looking for this information for HOURS (Really, hours).
