Treat box challenge - cricut basket box


There is a current challenge on the cricut boards to make treat boxes (thanks Gail!). There are lots of fun ideas coming up and I can't wait to see them done and to use the cut files! Mine is a tad boring, but I've been wanting to do this for a while as everyone loves to get a basket of goodies - anytime! This .cut uses George and Doodlecharms. I am not very good with adhesive - its on my desk, my wall, my floor - so I avoid it when I can. The basket already had a hole so I put holes in the tabs in the same place so they line up and you can use large brads or eyelets or tie a ribbon through - I used twine and then tied knots. It was a bugger to line those up but I think it will save me in the end (and I learned a valuable trick). I think this way too, it will stayed closed a lot better... ya don't want to spill your basket of goodies! Its pretty big, you could easily fit some cookies or cider packet/caramels or even some small flowers in the spring. File below.
