Tiny Box

Today I needed a tiny gift box to put a ring inside (for a friend's birthday)
 - I didn't want to put it in the box that the shop had supplied as it wouldn't really have been a surprise.
 To find something suitable I trawled the internet and found this little beauty on 
Sara's Crafting and Stamping Blog - complete with instructions on how to make it.
I used the Real Red cardstock and the Candlelight Christmas  Speciality DSP as Sara had done 
(because I do think that this is not purely a Christmas paper) 
To make the box I used the Petal Card Double punch to score and cut four panels
 for the sides, base and top.
 In place of the "merry" tag, I punched a "4 you" tag instead, 
using the Tiny Tags stampset and punched with the Jewelry Tag punch. 
I used 1/8" Real Red Taffeta ribbon to hold the box lid closed and to make a bow. 

Just to show how tiny the box is - 3cm square

I am so pleased with this box - thanks Sara for the instructions.
I would like to enter this into
