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 up.....as 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!!!

Just found you and your beautiful glorious creations! I don't own a PAZZLES but probably have to investigate that now. :)
Are you located in England? I will be going to England on Feb 3 and staying for 4 months, to babysit my grandson while my daughter finishes her design course at Central St. Martins Art and Design School in London.
I am a certified SDU teacher here in Canada but wonder where to buys supplies in England. Any help would be appreciated.
