Christmas Star Box

I've been having a play with another of the shaped kraft boxes I bought from Hobbycraft last year - this time a star which I decorated to hold a christmas gift.

The star on the lid was cut with a nesting die from some paper I've had for an age so not sure who by and I also added a strip to the box side. Then I added a string of pearls around the edge of the paper and to decorate the lid a couple of Tattered Lace snowflake dies and a Poppystamps tag die stamped with a clearly Besotted sentiment.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

That's Crafty! challenge 'wish upon a star'
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'deck the halls'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'get in shape'
Simon Says Monday challenge 'anything goes'
