Valentine gift for my hubbby

Good evening everybody,

i know i`m kind of spamming you all with my multiple posts tonight but i was very busy last week with other things and today i had to make up for my lost time!

This is a gift wrap for the EdT i am giving my husband for Valentines day. I used the true gentleman DSP again to make this one, and the lid is made from acetate.
To make an open box like this, take the measurements of your box, add the height of the sides twice to each side ( side walls are doubled to make them more sturdy) and glue your box together.
Create the lid accordingly to your box measurements , but deduct 1/16" from width and length of the center piece to make the lid fit easily.Also, add just the single height for the side walls to your center piece to create the lid.
It`s best to wedge the individual flaps of your acetate lid for best fit.
I also punched a gap for the thumbs to both sides of my box, using the 1 1/4" circle punch.

For the little card i used colour coordinated card stock and a piece of the same DSP to match the box.
I die cut the oval stitched shapes framelits in 2 different sizes and layered them to my card front. 
I finished off with a few buttons i still had in my stash.
To keep the box shut tight i wrapped a bit of the dapper denim ruched ribbon around it  and tied it to a bow, and my Valentine gift was finished!
