Box Book for Halloween, with a Mini Tutorial

I was looking in my closet and saw some boxes my husband saved for me, and an idea struck me like a lightening bolt...MAKE A BOOK WITH THEM.  But, how?  Then another thought...do it like a toilet paper book!!
I only had three boxes...
I cut the ends off of one edge...
I trimmed the other to 1/2".
I tucked in the 1/2" flaps and glued with strong glue to create a flat, closed ended pocket.
I covered them with paper, just like you would do with a toilet paper roll.  I bound them by punching strips with my EK Success  border punches, and used them to attach the pages to eachother.
I created tags for the pockets with my Cricut.
The backs of the tags.
I found some wide and wired ribbon that I put on the outside spine of the book.  The flowers added the details for the cover.  What do you think?  I LOVE IT!
