Handmade Baby Girl Announcement Chocolate Boxes.

Hey all you beautiful people
I am back with a new project today which are handmade announcement boxes for a Baby Girl. Now these boxes were custom made to fit 250gms of handmade chocolates. I have made everything for this box from scratch and it was fun......
I am putting this box up at monthly challenges at:
1 Allsorts challenge - Week 406 - Ladies and Girls
2 Cards and more Challenge#180 - Kids/children
3 Let's Craft and Create Challenge#123 - Entwined - Used twine to hand the tags
I have few pics and a video I made before I sent out these boxes.....some might not be so good as I took them in hurry. If you want a tutorial for this plz let me know and I will be happy to do one for you. Now, the supplies used to make these cuties are listed below and you can go throught them.
I would like to thank Itsybitsy for their promptness in delivery of the papers which was incredibly crucial for this project and they got the papers to me in just 24hrs....So thank you Rashmi Harish and team Itsybitsy.
I have used White handmade paper to cover these boxes on the inside as well as outside. The bright pink cardstock is from Fabriano and the other one is from Itsybitsy.  The flourish diecuts are made using MFT(My Favorite Things) Leafy Flourish die. The other diescuts are made using Sizzix dies and embossing folder. 
The tags are diecut using Itsybitsy dies and then given a little color using Picked Raspberry distress ink also from Itsybitsy.  The other little tag is fussy cut by me. I have used twine to tang the 2 tags and the box. the boxes are embellished using baby girl wooden embellishments and I have used different ones on all boxes. I got them in an assorted pack from A1 craft.
For the inside, I have added a little color using polka dotted pink paper tapes. Also I did add a little pink tissue paper shredding to bring in more color. I used baby pink in few and dark pink in the rest. The box is held together using Pink satin ribbon from Itsybitsy as well.
I have printed the messages using my printer on a white cardstock for the tags as well as for the inside.
