If you don't have a Cricut, you can search for similar files in your machine's software. Just search for things like treat box, 3d box, and St. Patrick's Day. 

After cutting out all of your paper pieces, you’ll start by gluing all of the rainbow pieces to the front of the box.

Flip over the box cutout to the back and glue the acetate shamrock window piece to the inside of the box. Flip the project back over to the front, and glue the green glitter shamrock outline to the window opening.
