DIY box

What a time I had trying to find a box to fit a bottle of man's cologne!
There are millions of template/tutes for square boxes and boxes with lids, but I wanted a rectangular one that opened at the top.
So, I looked at the other methods and after 4 prototypes, finally managed to make one.
Now, I WILL be grateful to get any links to tutorials that you may know of, that I obviously don't.
In the meantime here's the one I managed finally to get right.....
Quite pleased with it now and I've saved the last prototype as a template.
The box is made with Graphic 45 12x12 paper pad, 'Communique'. 
(From the same pad as the card in my previous post).
The placement of the wording on the box is a happy accident.
I've noticed also, that on hand-made Christmas crackers, 
the pattern always seems to be perfectly placed too! How Weird!
Well, that's it for now. Hope you like my box.

I'll be back at 5pm GMT with a brand new All Dressed Up challenge.
All of you who entered last months, gave us a real headache trying to pick just three out of all your fabulous entries.
I do hope you'll join us again for this one.
See you later!
