Who wouldn't want to get a gift in this awesome little gift box? I've taken some pictures of how I put this box together to share with you today.
I started with with a 3x3x2 kraft box. It comes flat,so it's easy to stamp on before you construct it. I used the snowflake stamps from Justrite Papercraft's Christmas Inner Thoughts cling stamp set. I stamped them with Versamark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder.
Here's how it looks after I put it together.

I stamped my tag with a sentiment from the Christmas Inner Thoughts set on Blackboard Stock Paper, embossed it with white embossing powder, then die cut it with a Spellbinder's Labels 25 die.
While the tag was still on the die,I traced around the inside of the die with a white ink pen to make a border in the shape of the die. I used an ink dauber and some white ink and gently smudged a bit around the tag to give it a chalkboard look.
Ok, now, on with getting this box put together! I found a cute Santa image sticker from Seasonal Salvage Stickers and added him to the top of the box. You don't see it on the finished product,but it will be a little surprise for the recipient to discover.
Now it's time to add the gift! I used some Kraft Recycled Tissue Paper to cushion the contents.

Now to wrap it up in some beautiful ribbons, bells and baubles! The red and white ribbon was purchased at Target. I also added a bow made from Kraft Wraphia Ribbon. I strung the bells and sentiment tag together with some red hemp cording from the Dark Jewel Hemp Cord Pack and strung it through the ribbon bow to attach it to the box. I also added a little wooden snowflake to the back.
Here's another look at the finished project:
