ABAC9 - Christmas card boxes

 This week we at Anything But A Card challenge blog  have a pretty easy seasonal challenge for you! You can take the Challenge's light aspect and do something that represents light- candles, fire, sun, etc. lights, lamps, etc or do something related to a Winter Holiday.  The choice is yours!

I have hundreds of various cards just stashed away waiting to be mailed - so I decided to give them away this Christmas season. And to do it in style I'm making gift boxes for them. Here are 2 finished ones:

Each holds approx. 6 cards and envelopes (they could take more if the cards weren't embellished).
The one in the back is for 5.5" square cards and the front one for A2.
For the square one I used general instructions I found somewhere (don't remember the page), for the A2 I used this tutorial.

I'm also entering them in My Sheri Craft challenge - called It's a wrap
