Cut a 6" x 5 3/4" panel from the same card stock and die cut the top and bottom using the Regal Borders and Pockets Die.  Cut a 3" x 5 3/4" panel from the Flowering Dogwood Paper Pad and cut using the edge Die from the Regal Borders and Pockets Die, ink the edges and attach to the panel using Dries Clear Glue.  Attach this panel with the Regal Borders to the 1 1/2" section of the folded base using Dries Clear Glue.  Cut two more 3" x 5 3/4 panels from the designer paper, ink edges and attach to the card.  Cut a 6" panel from the designer paper and trim to 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", ink edges and attach to the card base.

Box Bottom:  Cut a 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" panel from white pearl metallic cardstock.  Score at one inch all the way around. Cut slits in the corners and make notches. Fold at score lines and glue with Dries Clear Glue.  I use clips to hold the corners until the glue dries.  

Box Top:  Cut the top 1/16" larger than the bottom.  Score at one inch all the way around.  Cut an aperture in the middle using Spellbinders Medallion Three Die and make a window using Clear Cardstock.  Cut the corners, fold and glue.  Decorate with flowers and a bow.
