I call this one the "Magic Disappearing Lid" Box... I'm sure it has many more names. I love this box - it's so clever! It has a lid, but as you pull the top part up, the lid disappears and becomes part o the sides of the box... very snazzy.

I created this box with the papers from the Sparkle and Shine paper pack, just recently released in CTMH's Holiday Gift Guide. The stamps are from the Perfect Fit Frames set, Universal Backgrounds set and the Magical Days Set (also in the Gift Guide).
I cut many elements of this project on the Cricut, with the Artiste cartridge. The box itself, the Frame, the circle, and the "Peace" banner.
The cardstock colours are Juniper, Slate and Colonial White.
I hope that you like my wee project! If you want to make a similar one, contact me about coming to a Workshop - I like to have my Cricut on hand for neat little boxes such as these, which are far too tricky and fiddly to cut by hand.
This gift box is my second for the Holiday Gift Guide Blog Hop, click here to see my original post and also the links to the other ladies' creations.
