A little Tropic Gift Box

I love making boxes and have little spurts of making them.  Today, I've made this one.  I hope you like it.

Once I put in the body wash, I closed the top using a piece of cardstock punched out using the circle tab punch.  I then punched some circles and the sentiment is from a new set (released January 2019) called itty Bitty Birthdays.

The size and scoring for this box are:

Cardstock: 6.5" x 7".

Score along the long edge at ½" - 2.5" - 3.5" and 5.5"

Then along the short edge, 1"

Then snip up from the bottom to the 1" score line.

I have done a little template - not to scale which I hope you find useful.  The hatched area is cut out.  I have marked where to put the glue on the side strip, but this does depend on the way that you fold your box, so you will stick the glue on the part that you will stick to the inside of the box.
