Joy Forever card set with flip top gift box

Well, I'm still waiting for my order with the new Fall product from CTMH. So I am doing my best to use my "old" stuff up. I made this set while crafting at my BFFs yesterday. I saw a flip top box somewhere while blurfing on the weekend, and then I drew up a template (I use this term very loosely, as it is a messy pencil sketch without actual step-by-step instructions) on Monday and I created a box like this one, using Tinkerin' B&Ts and the Gear-Up stamp set, but I haven't completed the cards yet, so it's not ready for posting. I sat that project aside yesterday, I guess because I was in a different kind of mood; I wanted to play with pink.

I left the cards blank so they can be used for many different purposes. I used Wishes: Delightful Dots pattern, and I really like how they turned out. The picture looks like the small Hollyhock circle doesn't match the stamped flower and ribbon, but in person it does.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Joy Forever and Circle Around stamp sets; Notebook and Silhouette B&Ts; Black, Colonial White and Hollyhock cardstock; Black, Hollyhock and Desert Sand inks; Circle Coluzzle; Hollyhock twill; Black mini brads; Prisma Glitter and glue pen; 1 1/2" and 1" circle punches (EK Success); Scallop edge punch (SU); Wishes; foam tape (other).

How do you do it? Every time I see one of your mouth watering creations I think, "She couldn't possibly top this one." Then there you go and prove me wrong time after time. Great job. LOVE this!
