Gingerbread House Gift Box

It was craft night last night, and this week we all played with my Mum's new Go Create Christmas house die that she picked up in the sale recently.
 I decided to make a little pizza style gift box, it's 4x4 inches and an inch deep, the perfect size for a slice of posh soap, you know, the sort you can buy in garden centres by the slice that smell gorgeous.  I think I'll use it as an end of term Christmas prezzie for Robbie's teacher.
The box can be made from a sheet of A4 card and the little gingerbread house was made with bits of scrap.  Go Create dies aren't cheap, but they cut beautifully and the detail is fabulous.
I used a sheet of Papermania Christmas in the Country paper for a homespun look, I just love that range, I've used loads of the papers already.
To embellish my simple little box, I've added some claret ribbon, a bow, some claret pearls and some weeny red gems to the wreath on the door.
I'm entering this box in the following challenge -
