This project will cut on the Silhouette Cameo, or the Silhouette Portrait. If you use the portrait, you will need to scale down the file to 90%, and make sure your paper orientation is used to your advantage.
this method described in the link.
After you've cut all of your pieces, organize them, then find the triangle and rectangle panels. Put glue on the back side of the carousel horses and glue around the edge of the panel, then center the panel over the horse so that the panel is on the inside part of the box. (I like to use a good paper glue like Tombow mono adhesive so my paper stays flat.)
glued on, glue the two box pieces together at the tab.
Work around the box with glue to attach the walls of the box to the bottom of the box. I use these cute little clips to hold it together while gluing...They are designed for quilting and sewing, but I hijacked them into my regular craft stash as they are sooooo handy!
glueing the tabs as you go.
glue both the tab at the end and the bottom of the box tab to complete the box.
clips, then thread ribbon through the slits in the carousel roof.
Pull the ribbon so that the roof pieces come together, then tie a bow.
Now find the flag piece and get a pin or a toothpick to use as the flag post. Put a decent amount of glue between the layers--without being so much that it oozes when you press the sides together. You want your paper to become somewhat pliable while the glue is wet, so that you can curve your flag like it is rippling in the wind. See the transformation below.
I also have a few other variations of this box:
