Box to hold 6x6" cards

As I said yesterday I made the card front for another creation. Here it is. Phew....!!!! Hehehe. The box holds cards that are up to 6x6". I made this to sit in my friends hair salon that she is opening later this year and she wants to have my cards there to sell for me. Isn't she a sweetie. LOL. The box measures 6.5" x 6.5" x 12". I made it from a big piece of card from my craft shop. It is 400gsm. So pretty thick card. When I bought it it was 510mm x 640mm which worked out to be the perfect size for the box I wanted to make. I got a smaller piece of card to make the lid. Originally I was going to make a flip top lid but thought it wouldn't be practical and would probably get broken off quickly when people were flicking through the box. Hope you like.

What a fantastic box!!
About a tutorial, I have made one: HERE .
It is in Norwegian, but maybe it can work if you use my translator... The only different now is that I use the colour vintage photo in her face. On the tutorial she gets a bit pale;)
Hugs, Camilla.

Your card box is a real show stopper, guaranteed to get the gals to stop and check out your cards! I'm sure you'll be busy trying to keep it full!
