Gift Box - Little House

Today I decided to try and make a gift box similar to a bird house box that I usually make using my die cutting machine.  I wanted to make it by hand using my Stampin' trimmer and Simply Scored tool as I know not everyone has a die cutting machine.  I eventually worked out the measurements and here it is.......
I used Very Vanilla card as the base and punched out the larger flowers using Flower Fair Framelits, which is my favourite die set (so far), from the new Stampin' Up catalogue and the smaller flower using the Petite Petals punch.  I used the Hardwood background stamp on Crumb Cake to make the fence which I cut by hand and the sentiment is from the Something to Say stamp set. 
A few pearls on top of a strawberry slush butterfly and all tied up with the luscious Hello Honey stitched satin ribbon.  I was going to scatter some chocolates in front of the house when I took the photos but temptation gave in and I ate them!!
I will try, at some point, to put the instructions on how to make the gift box onto my blog.
Hope you like it and have a great day. 
UPDATE....HERE is a link to a template that will help you make this little gift box
