Thank You Gift Box & Handmade Cards

Good morning to you all! I would like to share a creation i made using an empty teabag box!
I made this for one of my neighbours who was kind enough to loan me a wheelchair when i injured my right knee after the NHS were not helpful! 
Update on my knee! I was informed that i had torn the cartilage on the right side of my knee and now i'm receiving physiotherapy to try to straighten it as it was bent for 3 months. I still can't straighten it fully yet!
Oops! Thank you Donna, i forgot to say i put a selection of handmade cards in the box!
Warning! Picture Heavy Post!
 I started with my empty teabag box.
 I then adhered some Papermania paper to the box and added some robin diecuts and 
a reindeer circle diecut.
 I then added some spotty Washi Tape along the edges.
 Added some check bows and robin to the front of the lid.
 Finished it off with a ribbon handle and a big bow, ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
And this is the side view!
