Sweet as can Bee Valentine Gift Box

Hi! I'm back with another tutorial and today I'm sharing my take on this "Sweet as can Bee" Valentine Gift Box, featuring Bundle Girl Beekeeper

Designer paper (used: Echo Park, Hello Valentine)
Tag Die, Stitched Pennant Die
Corner rounder
Small magnets
Scoring board and bone folder
Grommet, white twine

(1x) 7" x 11" - box
(1x) 2-7/8" x 3-5/8" front layer panel

(4x) 7/8" x 2-7/8"
(4x) 7/8" x 3-5/8"
(4x) 2-7/8" x 3-5/8"
(1x) 2.75" x 3.5"
(1x) 1-3/8" x 2-7/8" - tag pocket

How to:
Stamp Bundle Girl Beekeeper onto white card, colour, then fussy cut around the outline of the Bundle Girl and the  Bees. Set aside. 

Score the large piece of card on the long side at 3" and 4" from each end. Turn 90 degrees and score on the short side at 5/8" and 1-5/8" from each end. 

Cut as per the red lines below. 

Round the corners on both centre end tabs, and on one of the large end panels. 

On the inside of the panel with the rounded edges, adhere a magnet approx. 0.5" in from the edge. 

Lay the other magnet on top and apply some strong adhesive. 

Fold up the box without using adhesive, and close the flap the rounded edges over the other flap to adhere the second side of the magnet. 

Open up the box and there should be a magnet on each side. 

Round the corners of one of the  paper layers and adhere over the magnet. Adhere another paper layer over the other magnet.

Adhere all the paper layers to the outside, rounding the corners on the end section. 

Make a small tag, punch a hole at the top and insert a grommet. 

Adhere the paper layer, then adhere the pocket piece. 
Thread some twine through the top of the tag and slide the tag into the pocket. This pocket also fits a gift card. 

Adhere the paper layers to all the inside sections, except the the sections between the tabs. 

Fold down the  tabs, apply adhesive, then adhere inside the sections with no paper. 

Once the tabs are stuck down, adhere the paper layer over them

Repeat on both ends. 

Cut a tag approx. 3-3/8" long. 

Stamp the sentiment onto white card and cut using a stitched rectangle/pennant die. 

Adhere the tag to the front of the box, and then adhere Bundle Girl Beekeeper to the tag using foam tape/dots. Adhere one of the bees above the honey dipper. 

Adhere the sentiment across the bottom of the image, using foam tape/dots on the end. 

Finally, adhere the other bee overlapping the sentiment. 
Fill the box with candy hearts or chocolates.
