Christmas Box

WOW! November already?! Time sure flew by while I've been knee deep in filling Christmas card orders.  I'm taking a little break, while on break I made this box for a challenge. (short break LOL)

This Christmas box is for the challenge over At Joan's Gardens,
the challenge:
■ Use Selma's new technique for creating a box
■ Use a band around the box
■ Use Christmas Paper (Graphic 45 if possible)
■ Decorate the pull off band.

So I followed Selma's technique for making this pizza box so the front edge doesn't show any cut lines. (see above pic) I used Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium paper (same as Selma, didn't realize till I took the pic)  My band is a 1.5" wide crinkled silk ribbon and attached to the ribbon is a Fleur di Lis square with 3 Christmas trees and my greeting. Enjoy.
