Flip top card box

Hi - Tonight's post is a flip top box I made a while back to hold cards.  I wanted a box to hold about 12 cards but I didn't want the lid to be hard to line up and put back on each time you open the box - So this is what I came up with.  Kind of reminds me of a crayon box with the hinged lid.   I made it out of one 12x12 sheet and one 8½x11 sheet of cardstock.  Then I wrapped it in the Walk in the Park DSP.  The two sides are rounded so they swing back nicely and the bottom corner doesn't stick out.  The label is from the Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware kit.  I used So Saffron brads to attach it though and stuck three Little Leaves behind it.  I like the way it turned out! :]  Hope you like it too!  Thanks for stopping by -
