A gift box !!

Hi friends!
Today, I am sharing with you all a giftbox that I have made from scratch using cardstock and some beautiful pattern paper . The measurements of the box and the method on how I made it, I have referred to the youtube video of an international crafter that I found on Pinterest. HERE's a link to it if you are interested in making this.and keeping in mind the current Lulupu challenge which is to use 'Minimum 4 colours from the Lulup logo + create banners or pennants . This cute, little box can very easily hold a small sweet treat or an accessory like a bracelet or some pretty earnings. This could make a perfect party favour gift too! So, here's a look at what I have made :

To make this box, I have first cut and scored the cardstock, then measured and cut the pattern paper from the DCWV Fresh Floral Stack accordingly, and then covered all the four sides and the top of the box with it. Then, I created a small handle on the lid to make it easy to open and decorated the front of it using a die-cut panel which I have distressed on the edges using Crushed Olive Distress ink. I stamped the sentiment in the centre and also stamped, colored and fussy-cut the flowers and leaves using the Lawn Fawn Blissful Botanicals and Flutter By sets. Added the banners on the two sides of the box and a punched lace using the Martha Stewart Doily Lace which was then colored using Distress inks- Crushed Olive, Shabby Shutters and Tumbled glass.

Challenges entered :
Kraft Zone- Dies with Pattern paper.
A Creative Romance- Anything goes with Happy Birthday!

Hope you like my box. Do leave me your comments/suggestions. 
Have a nice day everyone!
