Snowflake Box - Spellblogger post for Spellbinders

I'm back with another Spellblogging post for Spellbinders
and I've another box to share with you this time

I just could not resist making another box with Becca Feeken's
Vintage Elegance Gift Box die set
I just love this die set, it makes such a useful size box.  It goes together so perfectly and then the only thing you have to worry about is how to decorate it!
 I made this one using Gold White and Red, which are the colours I'm planning to use for our tree and other décor this Christmas.

I absolutely love snowflake dies - I just can't get enough of them.  Every year I tell myself 'enough is enough' and then I espy some new ones and my resolution fails.
This box is decorated with two new Spellbinders die sets; Snowflake Snippets and Create a Flake 6 (I'll give the details below). 
 I cut the largest and smallest of the Snippets dies twice each and glued then one on top if the other, then matted them onto gold foil card squares to partially cover the top of the box.
I cut loads of each of the Create a Flake lots of times - some I've used on the box lid and front, others I'll be using on other project.  You might as well cut a lot out while you're at it, eh?

I've used lots of different gold and white card.  There's glitter and foil and sheen, and lots of lovely layers.  A gold organza double bow and some red gems in different sizes to add a splash of colour.
