The Four Seasons Box by Lene Lok is the perfect die to create quick and easy gifts or party favors!

To create this box, I started by die cutting the Four Seasons Box die using heavyweight black cardstock.  For each box, you will need two die cuts.  To adhere the pieces together, I used a strong double sided adhesive tape.

I wanted to create an elegant box so I chose to add some metallic gold and silver snowflakes.  The snowflakes from the Winter Canopy and Elements Dies by Lene Lok are the perfect size for this box!  I alternated snowflake designs, adhering four snowflakes to each side of the box.

To decorate the top of the box, I tied on some black satin ribbon with a few gold and silver bells added to the center of the bow.

For my second box, I created an entirely different look using the same dies.  I started by die cutting the Four Seasons Box twice using heavyweight red cardstock.

Using stencil paste and a stencil, I added some white snowflakes to the entire box before assembling the two box pieces together.  After the paste was dry I used strong double sided adhesive tapes to adhere the box together.

To decorate the box, I die cut the deer from the Winter Canopy and Elements Dies by Lene Lok four times using black cardstock.

To decorate the top, I tied on some black string and added some faux pine cones.
