Self Closing Box

New folds lure me in every time. 
You can find the tutorial for this self closing box right here.  One look at these cute boxes and I knew I had to try one.  Just for fun I added the matching border strip from the paper across the top of the bag.   The box really does snap closed by itself.  The ribbon, which is easily slid off, and binder clip are just to embellish it.
Filled with little school supplies, erasers, glue stick... it would be fun to give to a child returning to school. Or, if I were a teacher, I would love to find this on my desk filled with chocolates.


Papers, stamps and ribbon are CTMH products.
