Gift box with scraps???

Hello and Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you all had a marvelous Easter Sunday!
We had lots and lots of rain... so the Egg Hunt was
done indoors... it seems we have them indoors every
year do to the weather here! Rain? Snow? That's
usually the only 2 options! LOL Any who... I made
something that I'm pretty proud of... so I thought I
would share it with all of you! :o) On Saturday night
I was checking out the Cricut Circle MB and they
had a challenge to use up some scraps on your project....
And I thought great cause I do like to use them and then
yesterday the other challenge on there was to use pastel
colors... Doesn't have to be Easter.... So I thought even better!!!!
Sooo This is what I made....

Yesss... a BOX! LOL.. Don't worry there's more to this box...
The Designer paper is scraps and so is almost all
the card stock...

This box took me forever to figure out...
I wanted to use it to put 3 x 3 Tags inside...
after several billion attempts... I managed to come
up with a size that worked for me... YEAAA!

Here are the 3 x 3 Gift Tags I made to put inside the box...
as you can see I just barely had enough Design flower Paper
to do a few these cards... I had a little more stripes... :o)

I even had made these envelopes!!! YES I DID!!
Another time consuming thing... trying to figure out
the right size I could use... I have lots, and lots
of white card stock with all my practice cuts/sizes! LOL
The paper for the envelopes are not scraps...
I had to use full 12 x 12 sheets for them....

 And here is the whole set complete and in the box!
I LOVE how this turned out! Lots and lots of work
on my part.... Figuring out sizes but it turned out lovely
I think! :O) Here's the specks for this set....
Card stock, Ink, Stamps, Glitter Brad, - Stampin' Up
Ribbon - American Crafts & Stampin' Up
Designer paper - Ek Success (Flower, Strips), My Mind's Eye (Envelopes)
Flower Die - Tim Holtz Tattered Florals
Cartridges - Sweet treats (Cake) Cut @ 2 1/4"
Martha Stewart All Occasions - (Gift) Cut @ 2"
(Cupcake) Cut @ 2"
(Balloons) Cut @ 2 3/4"

I hope you guys like it as much as I do!
Don't forget to sign up for my Cartridge Giveaway... It
ends today!! :o) I'm also going to put this in the Challenges over at:

invitation, cupcake toppers/wrappers, banners,
