Handmade 50th Birthday Gift Box

Hey everyone
How are you all doing this week....I am back with a another new gift box...Ii have been making a lot of gift boxes lately and I really had some fun making them. Now this gift box is made to celebrate 50th birthday and is made keeping gold, black and white as color scheme. I really hope you guys will like this one...
I am putting this project up at Addicted to stamps challenge - Make your mark (I have used white gel pen to write on tags), Petal Lu  and Allsorts challenge - Lets celebrate.
This box is actually 9 1/4"x 5 1/4" on the outside and 8 1/4"x 4 1/4" on the inside and the thickness is 2". I have kept the embellishments to the minimum as the paper used is very decorative on its own. I have used handmade flowers, sparkle dots and few die cut flourishes to decorate this box.
The supplies used for this project are mentioned below.
 The little mustache is stamped with versamark using a foam stamp from itsybitsy and heat embossed with UTEE(Ultra thick embossing enamel) from ranger on a black cardstock. Then I just fussy cut is with little scissors and mounted it on the numbers using some strong adhesive.
The 3 little tags are handcut by me and the messages are handwritten with white gel pen. Holes were punched with a Kangaroo hole punch and then attached to the box using some white satin ribbon. I also used gold and white satin ribbonds as closure for the box.
 The Birthday Wishes sentiment is from Justrite Grande Handwritten Sentiments clear stamp set. I have heat embossed the sentiment using versamark and Gold embossing powder from Ranger on a black cardstock.
So here is the list of supplies used for the box:
1 Chipboard (Kraftily Konnect)
2 Black handmade paper (Itsybitsy)
3 Gold pearl paper ( A1 craft supply)
4 Gold satin ribbon (Itsybitsy)
5 White satin ribbon (Itsybitsy)
6 Silicon glue (Itsybitsy)
7 Pearls (Itsybitsy)
8 Pattern paper - Eno greetings Paper series Blossom.
