Pretty Christmas Gift box

Hi everyone, hope you are all well. I am still on my quest to shake thinks up some and stretch myself to make things that i normally wouldn't . I was spending valuable ( ahm) resource/research time on Pinterest the other day, when I came across a lovely box, then clicked onto the pic and ended up at Jenny Moores Stamping Moments wonderful blog with all these projects from SU. MMMm....So I bought the info on the top note box kit, which I really liked.
I changed it a little. Does this happen to you? You see some else's wonderful craft ideas and must have that particular die or what ever....I HAD to have the top note die from SU/Sixxiz a while back and used it like crazy, but it had sadly been neglected. Well it's been resurrected once again, and it really is the most versatile of dies I have ever had.....
Recipe: Cardstock and paper from my stash
Embossing is a Cuttlebug folder embosser, but don't know the name.
The label is a freebie from : Lilac & Lavender
I folded the tags to the ouside of the box, and then covered it with embossed extra pieces, this also gives the box a bit of extra strength and covers the tags, so that the inside would be smooth...
Blessings Hilde
