Accordian gift box

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I normally keep some gift boxes done up for small sharings but the holidays wiped me out and I just haven't gotten around to refilling my stash.  I had a birthday pressie I needed to get out and I wanted a sweet box for it.  Usually TBB&More is my go to cart for these but I wanted something different.  I was playing around a few weeks ago with the "From My Kitchen" cart and had an idea for the indexes so I started there. This is 8"X5 1/2", I cut on of the indexes filled to page on a 12X12 mat.  After it was cut I scored the bottom twice to make a 1/2" gusset, folded and then cut side without the tab to 8".  I scored the tab with a 1/2" gusset and put eyelets on the tab and the outside, so that I could run ribbon through for the closure.  I then cut side panels for the accordian at 3"X4" and scored every 1/2" and accordian folded. I adhered them to the side. and it was done.
 Here is a view with the tab open
Here is a side view.  Hugs
