Winter Wonderland meets Daring Cardmakers challenge

Hello the weather is gorgeous again here in London a true Indian Summer is really here! I made my gift box below as my DT piece for Winter Wonderland this week. Please hop over and take a look at the fab prize on offer and the other girls work as they are so talented.
I also want to enter this into the Daring Cardmakers challenge which is to use Tartan in your project. I hope it counts as it is a box and not a card.
I used a flower and a leaf stamp from MME bloom and grow stamp set I am loving this set so much. I coloured it to look like a poinsetta. I added some stickles and gems too. I made the bird using The Greeting Farms Vintage Birds set. I added Sakura pen for some sparkle. I used a sentiment from a personal impressions christmas set.
I cut in half a piece of A4 card vertically then I found the middle and scored. I then found the middle at each end and scored from this point to each corner of each half. You should form a diamond shape on the whole piece of card. I folded using a bone folder to create sharp edges. I then ran a cuttlebug swiss dots folder over the card. I added random stickles to create a snowy look. I punched holes in the sides and used my tartan bow to fasten and added my stamped decorations.
