I made up the box from one sheet of 8x11 cardstock and then made a lid to fit. I punched the base and top using the Top Note die from SU and then mounted another punched sheet of patterned paper which is from Anna Griffin. Before putting it all together, I cut a slit the width of the ribbon in the top and bottom die cut pieces, either side of where the actual box would sit and threaded the ribbon through from the bottom to the top. Once I'd glued the base and top to the box I tied the ribbon in place and this hold the lid on securely.
I had some chipboard embellishments in a similar colour to the patterned paper so fixed this to the front of the box and just added a gem to it. This will be holding some chocolates as a pressie for a friend. I love the colour combination - I also love the contents but I must resist - the diet is in full swing and doing OK so far so no nibbles for me this time (Damn it!).
