Small Snap Together Box with Lid

First Posting Here! I am loving my GF and have a lot of designs to post in the coming weeks.

Finished the prototype for a small keepsake box with a lid. I really like to work to create things that require no glue but still look pretty cool. The box is 3" H x 5" Square. This is in PG Medium Draftboard and takes a little over 5 mins to run. I laid out the pieces to fit on one sheet with a little left over. I have also attached the photos of how it snaps together. You will have to play with it a bit when sliding the sides down but once you get them down the tabs will snap tight. For the lid, there is a small “key” that locks the handle in place so the lid won’t slide or warp. I hope you like it.! Let me know how it works out for you!

Thanks!
There are so many things you can do with a basic box design. Here is a candle holder I made from the same box just without the lid.

I hope everyone expands on the design!

I have done similar but if you are using LED candles there is no reason to avoid the lid.

Thank you for the great design. I decided to reuse my calibration sheet to make the box. It turned out pretty cool!
