Countdown to Christmas 17- A little bit of altering

Back in the summer I made a set of cards with the gorgeous MME Lost and Found papers.......as a christmas present for my non-cardmaking SIL.
I wanted to put them in a box.....but couldn't find a suitable one........then when I was unpacking all our christmas stuff.....I couldn't believe my luck.....I found a box just the right size in a fairly neutral colour. I used some of the paper scraps to do a little bit of altering on the top.
And with the final few pieces made a couple of cards.
I may be very brave and print a greeting directly onto this bottom one
The challenge at TipTopTuesday is 'make a gift'......Charisma Cardz want 'last minute christmas makes'.......and Fairy Tale want 'a gift box'.
