Shabby/Vintage Christmas Book Box and Tags

Hello everyone!  I am in the Christmas spirit already so am excited to share this project with you.  I couldn't have made it without ScraPerfect ! I used a cream book box from Graphic 45 and the Sweet Peppermint line from Prima (paper, journaling cards, roses, leaves, and trim).  Take a look:



First off,  I have to tell you what an amazing hold the Best Glue Ever has on paper!  Honestly, I won't be using any other adhesives when paper crafting.  I glued mint green card stock on parts of the box followed by various pieces of patterned paper.  I also used the Best Glue Ever to adhere the red sparkly trim to the box.  The pearls from my stash already had adhesive and I used hot glue to secure the roses, leaves, and bottle brush pieces due to their weight.  I distressed the edges of the box and paper with the Tim Holz Tea Dye distress ink pad.  Here is the inside of the box:



I used more of the paper, trim, and pearls on the inside of the box.  Because I had stray pieces of bottle brush getting everywhere, I ran the Perfect Crafting Pouch over the inside of the box to 
activate the anti static properties before I glued the crocheted doily down and problem fixed!  Then 
I added the embellished bottle brush tree.  Here is a side view too:


 The box also came with a tag book, so I decorated it to match the box.  I hope you like it!



Again, I used the Best Glue Ever on the papers and all trims and lace.  I also glued some snowy iridescent flakes on each tag in the booklet.  Before I did that, I put the No Clog Writing Cap on my
bottle of Glossy Accents (that is always clogged), and it worked very well!  I used that to outline some of the text for depth. I distressed and tied some seam binding to the ring of the book to give it a more vintage feel.  And since I got glue on my fingers from pressing lightly to get the snow to stick, I got out my Perfect Cleaning Cloth and squirted a bit of the Best Cleaner Ever  on it and had clean hands in a jiffy!  Here a the other pages of the tag book:
