Folded Boxes

So my mishaps of this afternoon seem not to have affected my nightly crafting (although I did take a break to worship Jesus and learn more about how to respect my husband :)
When I posted earlier, I realized it had been 4 days since I had touched my craft stuff-yikes! Lea got me back in the game when I got really excited about all of her free svg files over at TuJ's and a Taco (her blog)-follow the link to check it out! Her file is the one I used for the boxes below. I was mostly testing out the size and the making, so I didn't put a great deal of work into decorating them, just used a bit of ink and some paper/vellum scraps. They were put together kind of quickly, but I LOVE the file, so I wanted to share it with you all! The first box is the mini one. It was the biggest I could make it on my personal cricut (6x12 mat) without piecing together. It measures 2 inches x 3 inches.
The next is the big box (the biggest I can do while piecing it back together, as the whole file doesn't fit on my little mat-should you have the expression, this isn't an issue). This one is 4 1/2 inches X 3 1/2 inches and is perfect for index cards (I'm thinking recipes)I had a picture of it open, but photoscape was acting up when I tried to watermark it and only saved 1/2 of it. It opens the same as the little one.
