Eileen Hull Designs by Sizzix Treasure Box

Here's another vault release from Eileen Hull Designs by Sizzix.  This is the Treasure Box and in addition to being a fabulous box on its own, it also works with the Stacking Drawers and Notebook.  See how the drawers fit inside the Treasure Box?

I chose to make my box a stand alone, i.e. no drawers. 

 I put a cute little handle on the front and topped with lots of lovely blooms.

This box is easy to make.  Here's how I put mine together.

Step 1:
I cover my matboard with paper before die-cutting. You need to cut 6 pieces as show below.  The 2 largest pieces are the box, the thin pieces are the lid, and the 2 rectangles are for top and the bottom of the box. I chose to make my sides 2 different colors.

Step 2:
Put adhesive on all the tabs as shown.  I like to use red liner tape as it has a strong hold. 

Step 3:
Join the sides together forming a rectangle shaped box.  

Step 4:
Then fold the tabs in as shown above and attach the bottom of the box.

Step 5:
Put the top of the box together in the same manner as the bottom.  I made my own hinge system for the top.  Die-cut another of the long sides of the lid, then cut the tab off one side and cut at the score-line on the other side. 

Step 6:
Place red liner tape or your favorite adhesive on the back side of the die-cut.  Attach the larger section to the inside of the box and the tab to the box top.  You can see the tab on the box top in this photo.  I place a floral decorative strip on the other section of the hinge.

Here's the back of the box.

Inside the box.  (Note: That's just a paint brush handle holding the box open so I could photo.)
Here's a link to another example of a Treasure Box that I made when this die was first released.
