Mother's Day Gable Box

Hi Everyone!
Hope you had a fantastic weekend, ours was fabulous! I wanted to share a gable box I made for Mothers Day.  I found a pack of 3 gable boxes at Target in the dollar bins, super good quality for $1.  I made this for a friend of mine that is coming by tomorrow and I just wanted to give her a little something. I put a few baked goods and a gift card inside.
The one thing I wanted to share on this was the bow.... I have lots of satin ribbon which I love!! but sometimes I feel like it looks plain, so I tried stamping on it and it came out great! I used MS ink and a hero arts polka dot stamp.
