I made this box this evening. The quality of the box is excellent, very sturdy card base, precut and scoured. The box is one solid piece of very heavy card stock. The outside of the box is very smooth, so it would be great to foil on. The kit comes with very easy to understand directions, and diagrams, which makes assembly super easy. The instructions tell you to assemble first and then decorate. This is one element I choose not to follow, as it is much easer to decorate the box while it is flat. But assembly is very simple and quick. The card bases that come in the kit are also of wonderful quality. I highly recommend this product, it is a great place to hold your completed cards or make and fill and give as a gift.
