Love this box. I assume the finished size is 4"x4"x1" and would be great for gift cards, jewelry, etc. I will definitely have to give this a try.

This is terrific and finally a box that you can get 2 out of a 12 x 12 sheet of paper. I think I will make a bunch for Christmas.

So cute! I am on leave from work with a broken foot and paper crafts have been keeping me occupied. This is sure to keep me busy for a little while today. I will make several up for co-worker gifts for the different holidays remaining this year.

So cute. I have been waiting for a box
about this size, and yes, perfect for little gift cards. Can't wait to do some up!

Cute idea, would be fun to make up for the cookies the women are making for the men for fathers day at church. Another way to give them out...

Thanks for an easy box that takes such a small amount of card stock. I have been looking for a box for some 3x3 cards I made - think I might be churning some of these beauties out today. Well done Jen and SCS for awesome Tutorials
