Teacher Appreciation Gift

Good evening all,
Oh gee time is going too quickly, I didn't get as much done today as I would have liked but I did manage to finish one of the gifts that I would like to give to those special teachers of mine.  Teacher appreciation is in a couple of weeks (I would tell you when but I keep forgetting and thinking it is the 8th May, but know it isn't, anyway, I will be prepared!!!!) and I thought I would make a few special treats. 
So this is the first one and it is a box that I cased from Sharon Burkert.  I absolutely love this box, it is so quick and easy and this time I have put four note cards in there.  I thought I might put a small chocolate in there as well (100gr block should fit nicely and if not, more for me to eat!) or I will make some tags if the chocolate doesn't fit.
Here is my box and cards....
 Baja breeze with a little pool party thrown in, lol
 Rich razelberry and this one has been picked out for my son's teacher
 blushing bride
 And the three boxes together with one set of cards, ready to go..
Just in case you need another look, I put in a second picture. lol.  Not sure what I was thinking but I'll leave it here anyway.
If you would like instructions just let me know or I can do a tutorial as well.
Stamp set:  Mixed bunch stamp set
Card:  Rich razelberry, baja breeze, blushing bride and very vanilla
Ink:  Blushing bride, rich razelberry and pool party
Acc:  Brads, non Stampin' Up
Tools:  Word window punch, pinking hearts border and (sorry I have misplaced by mini catalogue with the punch name) the new flower punch to go with the mixed bunch stamp set, 3/4" circle punch and paper piercer and mat.
Thanks for stopping by......
