Gift Box with tag and metal snowflake

So I have been so busy this week but trying to get this fun gift box made for the Challenge over at My Craft Spot from last week.... I think I am just making it under the wire as they already started their new challenge this week.  Last month I bought this awesome gift box svg from My Craft Spot after viewing all of the wonderful DT projects in the sneak peeks and blog hop (I fell in LOVE).  I wanted to use it in this fun use something metal challenge and here is what I came up with.

 I made the gift box and added dotted lines at the fold lines since I don't have a score tool on my machine.  I absolutely adore this little gift box... It can be used for so much more than just Christmas too.
 The tag came in the same cut file also with the Gift box and so does that beautiful bow on top.  I used one of my fun Tiny Tags Christmas Stamp Set for the December 25 stamped in versamark and then heat embossed in white.  That is also a My Craft Spot Product as well as the awesome snowflake I used from the Snowflake Border Metal die set I got last year from My Craft Spot.  I cut the snowflake out of a Monster Can ( I cut the actual snowflake border out too but have not used it yet) I used the shiny metal side for the front and decided to color it in with a purple sharpie.  I then added it to the fun tag and there you go... what an adorable gift box for some lucky person :)
Here is a view of how I attached the bow to the top of the box with a purple metal brad.

Here is the awesome snowflake Border from that set that I plan to use on something very soon and a few more of the single flakes that I did some coloring on.  the bottom one shows the back  with the monster can label view :)

I am entering in these fun Challenges:

Eva, I love this so much I don't even know what to say! I'm thrilled you snuck this in on time... I adore this cut file and love what you've made with it. The sparkly Christmas tree paper is beautiful and I love the non-traditional colors for a festive project! Your use of metal is spectacular! I have never thought to use a die like that.. the result is perfect! Thank you for sharing your whimsically delightful project with us at My Craft Spot!

Hugs and blessings,
