A hAnglar gift box

Hope you all had a wonderful New Years celebration and don't feel too hungover today :). I have my final Christmas creation to share with you this morning. You may or may not remember a cupcake gift card holder I made a few months ago - I needed a box to give it away in! I made a gable box from cream cardstock and covered it in some scraps of paper from my stash.
What better image for a muffin box than this gorgeous hAnglar girl baking?? I've coloured her with copics and added a touch of stickles to the cake case.

The flower is from a Prima Christmas bubble and the flower button is from The Hobby House. The swirl is a doo hickey die and the leaves are a Whiff of Joy die.

One the back of the box I added a sentiment from Magnolia and on one side I stamped a cupcake from the same hAnglar kit as the main image.

On the remaining side I added a Magnolia doo hickey tag stamped with a sentiment from the Stempelglede Vintage Christmas set, stamped with walnut stain distress ink. The lace is from my stash.

Here's a peep at the cupcake inside the box! As I had disposed of the usual card that comes with the gift card I created a circle for the inside of the lid to tell the recipient how much is on the gift card!

The gable box fastens together with a simple satin ribbon. Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Looks absolutely fab! :) And it´s the very first time I laid eyes on the cupcake and I´m once again so impressed by you and your work :) It´s so cool, looks totally real but I´m guessing it´s not ;) Since you made it a few months ago I´m pretty sure it wouldn´t taste that good ;)
Love it!
