Terrific packaging for the seeds, great image to go on it!

Another wonderful tutorial and a great box for giving seeds and other treats!  I was thinking it was somewhat like a bandaid box.  It would be cute to put a get well message on the front and pop in some tissues, Neo Citran and a small treat.

I made the box this evening, and still pretty new to card making -- I was able to make the box.  It's so cute and I have so many ideas for the contents in addition to the Seeds - which by the way is great! I was thinking of for a BD gift, hanky and gift card), and my list goes on.  However, I had a problem with the size of the white short strips and pattern paper short strips.  The box measured 3 1/2 " and if I understood correctly, you said to cut the short strips 3/4 x 3 3/4 ", and the pattern paper 5/8 " x 3 5/8".  Did I do something wrong with the construction of the box?  I had to change the size of the paper strips to fit.  Thanks again for a great idea, and please let me know if I misunderstood what I was suppose to do.

What a wonderful box.  I just love to put my cards in "homemade" boxes perfect!  Thank you!
