ABC Christmas Challenge - X is for...

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...we're approaching the end of the alphabet, and this time the theme is:

'X is for 4x4'
(Make a 4x4 inch square card or box)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Wild Rose Studio:

Prize - Merry Christmas die

I picked up a nifty little gift box punch board by We R Memory Keepers a couple of weeks ago in Home Sense...and when I saw that the largest size box you could make with it was 4x4, I just had to try it out for this challenge! I picked a sheet of 12x12 paper from my My Mind's Eye 'I Believe' pad, and used the punch board to create my box. I then used a coupe of strips of a co-ordinating paper to create a 'ribbon' effect, and added a die cut shape decorated with a snowflake (Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal') for decoration...this just slides off to open the box.

It was so quick to do that I made three more:

I'm also entering these boxes into the following challenges:
