Make a Box to fit Scentsy Wax Bar. 12 Weeks of Crafty Christmas Makes: Week 9. Using Stampin' Up! Products

I hope you are surviving the madness that is this black friday weekend? Perhaps even indulging in a little crafting to keep you sane ;-) This evening I have this weeks 12 Weeks of Crafty Christmas Makes video to share with you. When I designed this series of projects I knew I would need boxes to gift some Scentsy Wax Bars in (and I'm sure many of you out there also love Scentsy too) so I set out to design a box to hold one wax bar. The thing for me that was really important was to design a box that uses just one sheet of A4 card, or one sheet of 8.5" x 11" card for those visiting from the US, and that's what I did, lets see....
This was the first box I made using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits in a Pool Party, Pink Pirouette and Smoky Slate colourway. Notice the straight sentiment? I purchased the clear mount stamps and gently teased the sentiment into a straighter line before stamping.
And here are the boxes I made on the video. These are Smoky Slate with Silver Glimmer trees and Soft Sky sentiments.
 They each fit in one wax bar. Here you can see at the bottom of the boxes the inches version had to have a  slightly different assembly method to accommodate the 8.5" x 11" card from the US. But don't worry! All is explained in the video!
 So please, let me share the video with you now...
And here are the measurements for those who like written figures in addition to the video:
