A really LARGE gift box -- for The Cutting Cafe

Hello, and happy Monday, crafty friends.  It's Holy Week.  A week, for me, as church organist, of many rehearsals and many church services. Plus, we have some special Easter activities planned at the nursing home.  So, it's a busy week coming up.
This week, at The Cutting Cafe, Regina gave us two choices of files to work with.  Our choices were: the configuration box template & cutting file or the large gift box template & cutting file. I chose to work with the large gift box.
 And, it IS large! It uses 2 12x12 pieces of cardstock for the lid, and and another 2 pieces for the box. Designer paper is by My Mind's Eye.
I also used the Cutting Cafe file "Loopy Loop Bow - Flower".  The tag pictured in this close up is part of the Large Box File. The "for you" sentiment was stamped on the tag.

The brad on the Loopy Loop bow is by BoBunny.  The ribbon is from Close To My Heart.  The twine is "naturally white" twine by Timeless Twine.
What's more fun than a homemade gift in a handmade box?  I LOVE this cutting file!
Don't forget to visit The Cutting Cafe blog Thursday to see the rest of the inspiration from this talented design team.  Leave a comment and you could  win a chance for 3 sets of your own from The Cutting Cafe.
