This is for Anita's SCS Technique Challenge - Gift Card in a Card and Chrissy's Falliday Fest Challenge - Score One for Christmas. Anita's instructions were very clear and I could easily follow them. My only trouble was that I used too heavy of a cardstock and I had trouble achieving crisp folded edges. I would definitely use this technique again with a lighter CS. Nevertheless, I like how it turned out.
This box in a card would make a lovely presentation at a bridal shower or baby shower or likewise. I used a lot of scored lines to assemble this project. In addition, I added three score lines at the top for decorative interest. Two excellent challenges that worked well together. Hope you can try both of these challenges. Thank you to the hostesses and to you for looking!

Very sweet indeed. Until I read your write-up I thought it was going to be for Kathy's All Treats challenge - but of course it's perfect for Chrissy's too! I love the little gingerbread house on the lid of the box. What beautiful papers.
