Vintage Elegance Gift 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 do enjoy making boxes - can you tell?  
This box is a little beauty - I think you could probably fit about 6 chocolate truffles into this one, so it's a really nice size for making a gift look extra special.  The die I've used makes the basic box, so you can just tie it up with some ribbon or go the whole hog and decorate, decorate, decorate!

You need to cut 2 of each of the two pieces and then it's easy to put together.  I just used my favourite wet glue, but you could use tape if that's what you prefer.
To decorate the top of my box I cut a rectangle of  the same cardstock and then positioned one of the filigree dies from Vintage Elegance  Filigree Booklet from the same range of dies into the centre for cutting.  This gorgeous piece was then adhered to a piece of glitter card with narrow pieces of 3D foam  between the layers, then glued to the lid of the box.
For the front 'wall' I used elements from the Cinch and Go Flowers set 1 
To finish I made a triple bow from organza ribbon and a large sparkly brad for the top, and added another of the brads to the centre of the flower

Patterned card 350gsm
'Old Gold' Glitter card
'Old Gold' organza ribbon
2x large jewelled brads

Here's a run-down of the Spellbinders die sets used this time

That's it for this time, I love this die, its so easy to use and can make a box as simple or as decorative as you fancy! Anyway, I hope you like it too.
