Stack of envelopes or.....????

I made this box of envelopes.
It contains out of 10 envelopes all with cardboard in it.
Every envelope is cut with a little hole, a bit bigger then the match-box, so that the matchbox fits in on the end. Then glued the envelopes together (the hole alligned) The envelop on top doesn't have a cardboard in it. It is the top of the box, so it closes with that envelope. The yellow ribbon is as a decoration. As if the ribbon holds the stack of envelopes. In the decorated match-box i will put a tiny gift. You can pull the match-box out, with the little tiny ribbon-handle.

Ik heb dit doosje van enveloppen gemaakt.
Het bestaat uit 10 enveloppen met karton erin.
Elke envelop is een vierkantje uitgesneden (iets groter dan het luciferdoosje) zodat het luciferdoosje er net in past. Dan alle enveloppen op elkaar gelijmd. In de bovenste envelop zit geen karton. Dat is het deksel van het doosje. Het gele lintje is ter decoratie. Net alsof het lint de enveloppen bij elkaar houdt. In het gedecoreerde luciferdoosje stop ik een lief klein cadeautje. Je kunt het luciferdoosje er uit halen door aan het klein lintje te trekken.
