Amber Ink Gift Boxes

It is amazing how fast the past month has gone by.  This is my last week as an Amber Ink Torchbearer for the Brown Team.  No worries though, because I know that the crafter I am passing the torch to next week will represent the Brown Team well.  On Monday you will find out who!

Today I used up some iPaper scraps to create a couple gift boxes, each is topped with ribbon and a tag with an Amber Ink image.  I am giving lots of gift cards this year and a gift box adds a personal touch, plus there is room for some candy too.

 I am hopelessly addicted to the Snowflake Lace Blue Hint on kraft :>)
The tags were created using the Tags 1 svg file from Perfect Presentation.  I printed the images first and then cut out the tags.  Check out this tutorial to see how to combine digi images with cut files. 

The boxes are made using the Perfect Presentation Top Notch template.  What a fun opening!
2 more gift boxes down, about 8 more to go!!! 
These gift boxes are for Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas Inspired Challenge.
