Bottle Gift Box/Container and Layout

Today I am sharing the last of the layouts created using Fancy Pants Saint Nick's Layout Kit and a decorated bottle gift box for the holidays!

This is the bottle gift box/container:
I forgot to take pictures of the gift box opened... I adhered on flower on bottom and one on top so that when you open, both sides are decorated.  I did the same with the swirl... cut the swirl and adhered part on top and the other part on bottom.
Supplies: Gift box/container from discount store; sugared berries from Michael's; red, green and yellow cardstock; and shimmery paint.
Cricut: Flower Shoppe for poinsettias, and leaves; and Sophie for swirl (cartridges).  I just love the swirl from the Sophie's cartridge on this card= (hand cut the bird off)

I am entering this on the Cricut Circle Blog's  
DECEMBER MONTHLY CHALLENGE: Holiday Gift Wrapping Challenge!

I wanted to use it to enter the Magazine's challenge which requires you to use the Sophie cartridge, but you must have 3 cuts....

I used a beautiful wreath full of leaves, branches and poinsettias that Juliana Michaels created as inspiration, but do not have permission to share picture here (I don't think so).  She offered a file to download but also provided measurements, so I did not have to download file to cut the poinsettias and the leaves...the swirl and sugared berries are my addition.

This is the layout:
I flipped the design (journal to the right) so that I can place this in my album with the other single layout from this kit.  Additionally, I used two 4"w x6's instead of two 6"w x4's pictures.
