One sheet box

Hello, all!  Friday has arrived once again and it is time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long: make a Christmas project that is NOT a card.  Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice.  Here is my project:
 I was surfing through Pinterest the other day and came across a tutorial for the adorable little box.  It uses a complete 12x12 sheet of paper and involves NO cutting.  Nice and easy; my kind of project. : )
 As you can see, I created a little belly band and decorated it with a couple tags and my all time favorite Bugaboo image: "Plush Reindeer".  He is just so cute!!!
 When you open up the box, it is just the perfect size for a container of SU! brads (or whatever else they sell in these little containers these days).  So it's perfect for just a little something that you want to make appear extra-special.
Without anything inside, the box folds down flat.  Perfect for storing until you need to use it, or so the recipient can save it and use it to give a gift themselves.  And as you can see, if you use a double-sided paper, you get a fun little surprise on the inside.  Now it's your turn.  Can't wait to see what non-card projects you all come up with.

Fussy and Fancy #122--more than one fold (this one has a LOT of folds)
