This is a variation on the box I made in this post.
I've altered the measurements because I needed a taller box. Dimensions are 23cm x 26.5cm, so unfortunately A4 isn't quite large enough, I had to break into the scrapbooking stash.
On the long edge I scored at 6, 12, 18, 24cm and then at 3cm up from the bottom.
The lid is a fraction over 14cm square and scored on each side at 4cm.
Tag is by Tilda, snowflake card is Kanban.
I usually buy small 'favour' gifts for people at Christmas; sweets, chocolates, miniature bubble baths, wax tarts etc. For people who I see regularly but who aren't on my proper list as such.
This year I've ordered personalised Coca-Cola bottles on-line, they fit perfectly in this box but you can also fit two in the Papemania gift bags I decorated recently.

I've used Spellbinders 2010 ornament die plus an oval die. The sentiment is from a Waltzingmouse set that is designed to fit the ornament dies exactly, it's a beautiful set.
Papers are all from my assorted Christmas stash, I've added some distress inks plus gold Stickles.
The outer part of the ornament die is on foam squares to add some dimension.

Having a clear-out I found a couple of old jewellery boxes, rather than throw them away I decided to cover the lids with some scraps of stash.
'With love' by Tattered Lace.
The leaf branch is part of SU bird punch.
Oval dies are Nesties, I've used two sizes but sponged ink through the top one so it gives a bit more definition.
Holly is an old Sizzix die, berries are by Papermania
Stamps are Waltzingmouse

I've been using up some old Christmas stash making more boxes, the same size as previous post.
Then I scaled down the sizes to make a slimmer box.
Tip: do not use twine instead of ribbon, your box will not want to stand up straight ;)
I made this box to fit two chocolate bars. Guess where the second bar is?
