3D Thursday... Tutorial for new Lidded Box for Tag Topper Concertina Card

So I came to package my Share What You Love Tag Topper Punch Concertina card that I posted here... and realised a few things...

The Crumb Cake medium envelopes I had used previously are no longer available... though the card would actually fit in a standard C6 envelope... but the sizing is not as perfect...
Not all the ladies coming to the class had an Envelope Punch Board that I had used to create the box envelopes before... But click here for the Tutorial for the Box for the double-folded card version (ie as per the way the card is folded closed here)... OR click here for the 1" deep box for a single folded card version with lots of embellishing... and here for the 3/4" deep box for a single-folded card version (better for UK postage)
I have three ladies that seriously LOVE the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit box as shown below... so that inspired me to make a version but sized specifically for this card... and I think it worked out pretty well...
Though I have to admit that I was going to create a double-sided version...but then I remembered that it was the first box and lid for 2 of them... so I kept it as simple as possible... but this way I can also make 2 from a piece of 12x12... whereas the double-sided version would have meant a full sheet of 12x12 paper for each box...

Now doesn't that just make the most special of cards... and presentation...
Now as you can see I originally made one on a Rich Razzleberry base (as that matched the original inspirational box more...) but I switched to a Crumb Cake base for those girls that don't like their pinks...
And so here is the Tutorial... for my US readers... note that the inches measurements are a literal/nearest conversion from centimetres ... and untested... so I am not sure how "tight" the box & lid will end up...
