Christmas Present Box Card

Hello my friends, hope you've had a great week.
Our lovely and talented Michelle is our host over at BBTB2 and has challenged us to make a cricut holiday card.
A couple of months ago Hunkydory brought out a card kit that opened as a present. Since I'm not a kit sort of girl I thought how can I make this work on my cricut and this is what I came up with...
My present boxes...
Inside a Christmas 3d scene!
Okay, my presents look nothing like the Hunkydory ones but I am rather pleased with how they turned out !
Here's how I made them...
I used Wild Card and cut the base box at 5.5"
The sides and top are not cut on the cricut.
For the sides I cut 2 pieces of card at 3.5" by 3.25"
Top piece is just over 4.5" by justover 1.75"
I cut red card at .5" by 4.5" and .5 by 3.5"
and diecut a bow. I used a  My Creative Time die but Artiste also has bows on it.
Assemble the box, but instead of securing both sides just seal one and the top/back that would usually open.
For the insert cut card at 4.25" by 3.25"
Decorate the card. I used Winter Woodland for the skates at 2.5"
I used lots of 3d foam for dimension.
Glue the insert into the card and then glue the side up.
Score all pieces at .5" to attach to the back and then just over.5" to fold around box.
Only glue the pieces that attach to the back of the box as you need the rest to open clear.

Add the red card and bow to make it look like a present, just remember to only glue to one side!

I used  Postcard Add on's and Holiday Tickets from My Creative Time.
An assortment of dies for the first present box.
I have another design to share later this week.
I am entering this over at My Craft Spot - Christmas shaped card.
I am also entering this over at FCCB sparkle and bling challenge.
I hope you like my present card, do
come and play along with us at BBTB2.
Thanks for looking.
