Gift box with a Tag

Hi All,

Here is my first attempt to create a box other than cards and paintings.Its a very small sized box perfectly apt for gifing jewellery and coins. I bought a few homemade chocolates thats was wrapped in a similar kind of box, which served as a tute to me. Well, had lots of fun making this one, sometimes I also thought ,should I continue with it or stop, but finally loved the end result :)

I used one cardstock from the DCWV stack measuring 7X7  and then doing some vertical and horizontal scoring, and some cuts at the four corners and finally, some diagonal scoring. Since, the paper itself was so pretty, I did not want to embellish too much, so did some Distressing and embellished with rhinestones all over the front and rear side of the box and for the matching tag.The backside of the tag is kept plain to write a message to the recepient.Used the Itsy Bitsy glitterd pink flowers matching the rhinestones . Then, tied up all using Pink Organza ribbon.

Here is a pic of the box and the matching tag,

Violet - MS punch out strip
Indigo - the Double loops border punch out which serves like a frame
Blue - Bow using Blue gingham ribbon and rhinestone
Green - Pearls all around
Yellow - MS punch out strip
Orange - MS punch out strip
