Double enjoyment

I received this present from a dear friend:

The tea is lovely - and what a sweet box - too good to just discard, so ....

I cut out the front, trimmed it up, covered up the top bit with a sentiment and covered the info about the tea with a line of red gems ...

The background paper is imaginisce twitterpated.

I'm linking the card for these challenges:
