Today's post shows you another way you can use your Window Box thinlit by making a hinged box that opens up like a Pac Man.

The first one is a little red one that you might use for a Valentine treat or gift.  It is closed with a little button and some twine.

I put the little heart square cut-out on each side, but not the bottom.  If you want to make sure all the hearts are facing the right direction be very attentive to how you place them when cutting them out.  As you can see the one on the front of the box is upside down, but it is going to stay that way.

The second box has just the front cut out and Floral Boutique DSP on the sides. I put a bow on the front to help hold it closed.  Inside I made four little gift cards using the square cutouts ad DSP.

The envelopes for the cards are made with the Envelope Punch Board.  I started with a piece that was 4 x 4 and scored at 1 7/8.  Then I cut white card stock at 4 x 2 1/4, folded in half, cut out the image, and popped into the envelope.
Click here to go to the Work of Carte Blog to see how the blogger (sorry, I can't find her name) cut the die to get the two pieces for the hinged box.  Just a tip that when you cut the hexagon in half as directed on the blog, make sure you are cutting in half and not just from the point to the point.

Here is a picture of the cards inside:

Come back on Friday to see some samples of the "half box" or basket.
