November Monthly Challenge- To make a project for Gift but no card!

Hi Everyone, It's that time again for Elizabeth Craft Designs Monthly Challenge. This month's challenge is to make a project that simplifies as a gift. So here is my project a treat box and you can find the instructions here.

1. Create treat box using Early Espresso cardstock as per instructions.
2. Cut cream paper 1 1/4"x 4 3/4", adhere to top of  box. Cut window with tag from Lucy Label Pop Up die. Adhere clear acetate to fit inside of box.
3. Cut 2 pieces of Triangle vellum 5/8"x 4 3/4". Adhere to both sides of box.
4. Cut gold snowflake paper 
3 1/4"x 4 3/4", adhere to base. Cut stripe vellum 3 "x 4 1/2" adhere to gold paper.
5. Cut gold tag using Tags & More 1 -Lace. Cut stripe vellum 2 3/4"x 4", adhere to gold tag. Cut cream paper 2 1/2"x 3 3/4" adhere to stripe vellum. Cut a strip of Triangle vellum 7/8"x 2 3/4". Adhere to stripe vellum. Add gold ribbon.

6. Add Transparent/ Gold Glitter Borders as shown.
7. Cut "Peace", and "Merry Christmas" using Silver Shimmer Sheetz. Cut tag from Lucy Label Pop Up die. Place "Peace" on top.

8. Place Black Decorated Christmas Trees Peel-Off onto white cardstock with double sided adhesive on top. Cover Peel-offs with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish glitter with your finger. Use a brush to brush off the excess glitter. Follow Els’ step by step instructions for this technique HEREI used Tombow Dual Brush Markers although they do require extra time to dry as they are water-based. Use alcohol-based markers instead of water based markers if you prefer.
9. Add Red Glitter dots to Christmas tree along with Transparent/ Gold Glitter Stars to top of tree.

10. Cut Snowflakes from Stripe Vellum paper. Adhere using pop up dots. Add Transparent/ Gold Glitter Stars to top of snowflake.

Here is my second project which is Lip Balm holder. You can find the complete instructions here. I just change the opening for Lip Balm using a 3/4" punch.
The Black Christmas Cup Cakes Peel-Off were done the same way as in Step 8. Cut oval out using oval from Katie Label Pivot Card with stripe vellum paper. Add Transparent /Gold Glitter borders as shown.
1. Add Black Best Wishes Peel-Off as shown.
2. To close the box add a piece of Velcro.
