Christmas Gift Box

Yesterday I was visiting blogs and there on Myra Shaw's blog was the is awesome box, and the tutorial to go with it. I loved it at first sight (Thanks So Much Myra) I had to create one then and there. I decided I did not "have" to prep for that next class, it could wait till I was done. Then, the box turned out so good I had to cut out and put together some more. Visit Myra's blog to get the template and tutorial for this box, its fun and easy to make. I can't wait to decorate the other 5 I've put together!!!!! For this box I used Myra's dimensions (8.5 x 12 cardstock). Then Shanna, my downline said, could you do it with 8.5 x 11 inch paper too. So I sat right down and redid the dimensions and created it using 7.5 x 10.5 inch piece of cardstock. They both work, Myra's works out to be a 4" cube, and my redone one works out to 3.5" cube. Here is the 4" one I made ~ ~ ~
Here's the front of the box:
And on each of the other 3 sides:

And on the top:
And finally a close up of the front:

I used:
Stamps: Christmas Punch (level 2 hostess), Christmas Classics, Serene Snowflakes
Ink: Old Olive, Real Red
Cardstock: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White
Other: CB embossing folder, Real Red 5/8" GG Ribbon, Diamond and Xmas Red Stickles, Wide Oval Punch
Here is a picture of my redone instructions with the new dimensions:

Hope you get a chance to make one / some of these fantastic boxes.
Bye for now, gotta go prep for my class now................
