Gift box

My daughter has recently moved house so I thought I would make her a little gift. I made a simple box out of one sheet of card, then I cut two shapes just slightly bigger than the the base and the top of the box. After decorating one of the shaped pieces of card I placed ribbon between the base of the box and the shaped base. I then created a stand for the back of the top piece so as to make it like an easle card. I finished off by placing the ribbon under the stand and attaching the decorated top piece and adding a few gems.
