Eileen Hull Inspiration Team November - Merry and Bright Gift Box

It's Tuesday - and I'm back again to share another project using Eileen Hull's Sizzix Products and DCWV Paper Stacks.  All month the Inspiration Team will be posting on their own blogs and over at Eileen's blog.
Today I made a 3"x3" gift box using Eileen's Block/Cube 3D die, her Flower Heart and Soul Die and 3 different metallic sheets from DCWV. 
The gold pattern and big dots papers are from Modern Metallic Paper Stack - and the gray with gold lettering used on the flower is from Cranberry Christmas Paper Stack.  I die cut the box out of  white Little Sizzles Matboard, then I cut out 6 pieces of the gold design paper 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" (1/4" smaller than the sides of the box) and adhered them to all 6 sides.  
I assembled the box leaving the top panel open (a very important thing to remember so you can get into the box!!).  I cut 4 pieces of the gold foil with white dots 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" and adhered them to the 4 sides.
I die cut the flower and layered it onto the cover with foam dots.  I gold embossed a sentiment on a strip of white card stock and layered it over the petal, again using foam dots.  
Here's the box on it's side so you can see the cover face on!
And now I have a sweet little gift box to put a gift card or small gift for someone on my list!
Every Tuesday in November Eileen Hull will have the Inspiration Teams posts all gathered in one place on her blog  - so please check it out!
I'll be back next Tuesday with a fun mailable frame card!
