Cupcake / Gift Gable Box with Strawberry Ribbon

So where did the sunshine go? Seriously though the garden was a little parched so we needed some rain, and the fresh smell after a shower is invigorating. 
Am sure the sun will make an appearance again, and the vegetable garden is looking good again.

Onto my next project share, a gable box which was made from two 12 x12 sheets, enabling me to make flaps for sides and bottom from both sheets and the result was a good size box - it measured 6 and 1/2 by 4 inches when finished - good for two cupcakes.

these are the supplies I used
Craft Ribbons Strawberry Shortcake Ribbon - yum (if you live in Ireland and want to order the ribbon, just email Crafty Ribbons so they can calculate postage before shipping goods, as the checkout on the shop adds way more than it should, and they kindly told me to email them when ordering)
Spellbinders label dies  28 - the pink shape behind the sentiment
Spellbinders grand ovals /grand ovals
Craft Creations stripe paper
EK success retro flower or Spellbinders/Heartfelt Creations posy patch dies
an old quickutz strawberry die
not sure about the brand of the punch used for the centre of the flower but it was blue with a white round punch thing (not a lever) - maybe someone can help me out there!

Some more photos of the box..

... and here is the centre 'holder' so the cakes don't move around and make marks on the walls of the box.

Hope you like the look of the box, which has so many options in terms of decoration - I will be making a Christmas themed box with no window, just perfect for small gifts.
