Cadbury Creme Egg Box!!!

I have been waiting patiently for these images to arrive, I ordered them hoping they would arrive in time for Easter... And they DID!!!! I immediately inked him up and made this adorable box for my little niece.

As soon as I saw the Cadbury box, I knew I wanted to make one of these boxes but I had to change the measurements since the Cadbury Box is 1 1/2" tall. My measurements are as follows: 12 long x 5 1/2 wide, I scored at 1/4" 4 1/2", 6" and 10 1/4". Hope this makes sense. The first score at 1/4" is the lip, and the last score at 10 1/4" is the part that will hold the Cadbury Creme Egg box, that part folds up, the 1/4" folds down. I did not know how to hold the ribbon, So I used these brads I've had for ages to secure the ribbon, I have one on the front, one on the spine and one on the side.

The inside of the Box:

The spine. Ok, a little off with the brad, but hey, that's what makes it handmade..

This fits the following challenge:

Gorgeous box, Debbie - I bet your niece loved it (not to mention the creme eggs!). Didn't realise Cadbury's sold in the US - it is THE best chocolate!!!
