3x3 Notecard Box & Cute Little Hanna's

I made this cute little box for Cindy Haffner's challenge on the My Favorite Things forum during the Preview Party. I love little 3x3 cards, and this is the perfect little box to put them in! It uses a full 8.5x11 sheet of paper with the following score lines:
Long Side: Score @ 2", 5.5", 7.5", 11"
Short Side: Score @ 1.5", 3.5", 7"
To form the top leave the area that is highlighted in red on the above scoring instructions and fold it over the top. The remaining tabs can be trimmed off the top, then the bottom cut between the tabs and folded to close. I hope this make sense.... I'm being lazy and not drawing up a template!

I caved and purchased some new stamps from the SCS banner ads.... I bought the debut Hanna set! These are the perfect sets for teenage girls... and I happen to have 2 of them!
The first card was my attempt at a Hanna Christmas card... a little tongue in cheek though! Especially with the dollar sign above her head and the Christmas Joys sentiment. I LOVE shopping, but I'm bad at Christmas Shopping. Plus it'll be here before we know it.
I used the new Figgy Pudding 6x6 paper from BAsic Grey - such great colors!!! Hanna's dress and bags are cut from this paper as well.
Thanks for looking! Let me know if you use the box template.... I'd love to see the results!
