Altered Box for Christmas

I started a healthy diet program.  My food comes in 4x6 boxes.  Since I have a couple of craft shows coming up, I decided to alter one of them and see how it turned out.

I used Lost and Found paper. 
The beautiful lace is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 I added a 3x3 envelope on the front with a tag in it. Thought someone might want to use this for a gift box.  Could put a little note in there.

 Here's the top of the box.  The image is from NICE CRANE DESIGNS. The tiny red and white rose buds and the skeleton leaves (which you can't see) are from WILD ORCHID FLOWERS.

I totally love how it turned out.  Hope it inspires you to alter something that would have been thrown away.
