A lovely little gift box from me today

I have been wanting to make one of these little gift boxes for ages, they are made from a double sided 12 x 12 sheet of paper using Origami folds, there are loads of tutorials out there, just type Origami star box in the search bar.

The  paper I have used is by K&Co

I have also used a Martha Stewart punch, Cheery Lynn butterfly dies, Heartfelt creations flower dies and a Spellbinders die in the centre, Card Candi and ribbon and little gold round beads on a string.

I am entering this gift box into the following challenges
