 I am also using Samantha's Box with Round Handle and 
her Card Snowman Warm Wishes cuts along with her Tea Party Papers!

 
Here is my project:
And here is how you can create one for yourself...
1.  Cut out the box with round handle and fold on all the score lines.
2.  Next cut out the panels in a coordinating color and adhere them on their corresponding areas.
3.  For the large panels, I ungrouped the "Warm Wishes" Sentiment from the snowman card cut and then did a release compound path to get just the text pieces.  I then regrouped, sized it to fit, and moved the text on the large panel pieces, centering then cut them out.  I also cut out a background panel to make the letters pop.
4.  Adhere the sentiment panel on the background panel with foam adhesive.
5.  Adhere the remaining panels on the box.
6.  Adhere the snowflake cuts on the side panels.
7.  Sit the box upright and push in all the sides.  This image shows inside the box.
8.  Bring the handles together….
9.  Then tuck the handle tabs into the side slots to close!

I added a snowflake tag to the handle and tied it on with ribbon and twine.
To make a background for the snowflake, select the snowflake in studio and then click on the Offset Window Button.  Click on Offset and then choose 0.10 and click apply.

You should have two images now.  SImply cut them out and adhere then together.  

Your tag should look similar to this:
Finish your box by adding in clear jewels to the center of the snowflake cuts and now you are ready to fill it with your gift or admire it on your shelf! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
