Anniversary gift

I saw this beautiful trio of boxes made over at Sharon Johnson's blog , which I hightly recommend that you go check out. I decided that this is going to be part of what I was going to make my in laws for their Anniversary, and I was going to make some sort of treat to put inside it. I found the perfect cardstock from PhotoMemories, I just LOVE the blue colored is all I have to say :)!

In the end I made some Chocolate orange walnut Biscotti to put inside the box, I did make a little too much and so it wouldn't all fit into the box...I put the rest in a baggie and put it in their gift bag. Since it was my first time making these boxes I decided simple was best, and work my way up into the more difficult look later. I LOVE how it turned out, was sort of surprised because the project started to head down that road of "this isn't going to work"...perhaps I was just being hard on myself. Anyways, I gave it to my inlaws this afternoon and they just LOVED both things I made...I think they had a few pieces of Biscotti too :)!

This picture is of the top of the box, since you don't really get a good idea of what it looks like from this first picture :)! Once I get the hang of making these boxes I am sure I will be putting more details into them...
