WOW! Card Box with Instructions

I posted about a Halloween Card Box I made the other day with the promise of instructions later.  I have never made instructions for someone else to follow so please be patient with me 🙂  I also would of made it as a video, but have no clue on how to go about doing that……….so the instructions are in pics & are kinda long (sorry).

If I at any time confuse you in the basic making of the box please visit Janet Wakeland’s youtube video.  Thanks for taking a look. 🙂
