A Very Shabby Gift Box & Ornament for Visions of Sugar Plums Day 3

Goodness this was rather simple to create. Mainly it was just a really sturdy box and then I put some pretty paper on it! Had some fun decorating it! Love pretty flowers and some vintage foliage! This box can be yours, just leave me a comment and let me know what you like about it!

The feet were rather easy to attach. I just poked a hole through the box and attached sparkly brads!

I'm including this sparkly snowflake ornament with some hand dyed seam binding too!
