Wonderful Gift Box!!!!!!

I found the idea for this gift box here and if you check out her entire blog, Elly does some absolutely beautiful work!!!  I set about making a cutting file for this project so that my Pazzles Inspiration Creative Cutter would do all of the cutting for me, which is always nice!  The only thing that was not done using my PI was the Spellbinders Labels Two and the Martha Stewart "Eyelet Lace" punched border.  The "dahlia" flower is from a template I purchased from "Fred She Said" (you can find it here) and I even set it up for my PI to cut all of them out for me!  Something else that I want to point out is that I've used some silk wallcovering samples from Lowe's in the making of this box and............I LOVE it!!!

Here is a photo of the top of the box:

Here is a photo of the box opened an extra security I used some brads to attach the box tray to the card section:

And last but not least, here is a close-up photo of the flower I made:

I used this gift box to hold a Christmas gift.  Thanks Elly for the marvelous idea!!!
