I've made a box!

I bought the Martha Stewart Scoreboard a couple of weeks ago and I decided to open it up this morning and make a box using the instructions that came with the board. The box is 4" x 4", I've used DCWV Linen Closet papers as they are super thick and very gorgeous! The basic box took a few minutes to make, I can't believe it was so easy, the scoring was a dream! I have decorated the box with a fan (just scored a strip of paper at half inch intervals and folded it up and glued at one end) and some flowers and pretty little butterflies. The box is for a friend for her birthday next month. I have enclosed a braclet I bought a few weeks ago from Pink Poppy Creations (it's beautiful) and made a magnetic peg and a paperclip bookmark using the same DPs as the box.

I would like to enter my box/contents into the following challenges:
Simon Says Challenge - Buttons, Bows and Bling! (button on the peg, bow on the box, bling everywhere as the paper is glittered)
Allsorts - Week 49, Be Inspired (I have little butterflies on the flowers on the box lid, on the peg & bookmark)
Papertake Weekly - Do Something Different (first time using my scoreboard and making a box)

Here is the contents, a bracelet (bought from Pink Poppy Creations), a decorated peg magnet and paperclip bookmark.
Supplies:
Papers - DCWV Linen Closet
Brads - from stash
Ribbons - from stash
Adhesive sparkly dots - Papermania
Button - Basic Grey Lemonade
Tools - Martha Stewart Scoreboard, Hobbycraft butterfly punch, XCut & Hobbycraft flower punches, Woodware leaf punch, Quickutz journalling circles die
