Remember when "cut" and "paste" used to mean using scissors and glue? This tut will help you create a charming little box that you can cut out and glue together. These boxes are the perfect size for gifts or for display on a miniature shelf. If you want, you could even hang them on an Easter tree or Christmas tree. (or any other thing your lil' heart desires.)

My thanks and undying gratitude to Jane for her help in creating this tutorial. Many of the supplies you need for this tut can be found at her site.

See an example of seven completed boxes ready for cutting here.
