Self Closing Gift Boxes

First of all I would like to say welcome to my three new followers-Leslie,Sherry and Robin.I found a simple(yer right) template for a self closing gift box and decided to make three now after cutting the card with the wrong measurements not once/not twicw but three times I finally suceeded-yyaayy-the cardstock is from Papermill Direct,green and red papers are from Docrafts,ribbons and beige paper from stash and the stamped wreath and sentiment from Penny Black,scalloped circle/stitched circle die-cuts from Creative Dies.
