Quick Gift Box & My Santa Collection (Heavy in Pics)

Wanted to share a quick idea for a gift box I made using A Creative Cuts and More .I started with the Cupcake Box Set in a great SU red color.
Did you know you can choose your paper type and colors and have most items made to your choices?
This box set comes as a four piece set.
You receive the  bottom of the box, the top of the box, the holder for the cupcake plus the acetate square for the window.
This die cut has scored folds.

Now how easy is this? I just used a couple large cuts of Tulle with sparkles and tied a bow. How easy to add a Christmas Pic and make a cute gift look even more special.

If you want to take a look around at Creative Cuts and More please use my code to purchase. You will get a 10% discount -my code is CC&M10Dawn.
