AN INTERLOCKING BOX

Hello, my dear friends!  I hope you all had a great day!  I must say, I've enjoyed laughing at the comments I've gotten today with guesses for the surprise giveaway.   I just know no one will guess what it is (if you do, I'll be reallllllly shocked!).  Of course if no one guesses what it is, I'll be giving out the details soon -- so be on guard!!!

I was browsing through some old catalogs and stumbled across a box that caught my attention.  There was nothing extraordinary about the box, it was just a box and looked like a plain ole box -- but, what caught my attention was how it closed.  Now, you all may be a bit more "savvy" than I and possibly have seen this type box before but I hadn't -- it's called an interlocking box.  The way the box closes is that the 4 flaps (the 2 on the lid and the 2 on the bottom) are all tucked into the inside of the box and this causes the box to lock.  Now because I like things that operate a little differently, I thought this was pretty cool -- but, like I said, you guys have probably already seen this box before.  Anyway, in case you haven't, here's a picture showing the 4 flaps...

Now, you'd carefully tuck all the flaps inside the box while you're closing it, and it looks like a box, but it interlocks!

Here'll you see it just looks like a decorated box...



Let me know if you've seen this before or not, and what you think.  If you like it, I did a cut.file too.

Hey, did you notice my watermark?  I just figured out how to do it!!!  Cool, huh?

I'll be seeing you!

Everybody has probably seen them -- have they been around for a while? So, where I have been? LOL! Thanks, Sheila!

I'm really glad you all like the box! If you decide to download it, I'd really like to see what you can do with it -- I'm always curious as to what can be done with things that are new to me!

I'll be seeing you!

Hi Audrey, I've not seen this type of box before, either... And let me say that you have decorated it beautifully!! I wish I could use my Cricut the way you use yours. I'm really intimidated by it.
I just love coming over here to see what you've been up to!! You're just soooo talented!! XX
