Gift boxes made on my Eclips

I really had a great time playing for the first time on my  Sizzix Eclips. It was the easiest electronic cutter I've ever used. I also own a Cricut Expression, E2 and Gypsy, but I think the Eclips is the one I will go to first and foremost. To make these boxes, all I did was put in the cartridge, press a few buttons and done. It cut like butter and I could not believe the scoring it made on the cardstock. They were so easy to assemble and no perforated little lines to follow (which I find very unprofessional). The first box (smallest of the two) was made with the cartridge Albums, Bags & Boxes (pg 90-91). I cut it at 11.25 inches and came out to be about the same size as the new Spellbinders Square Bracket Edge Box. I embellished the box with American Craft Ribbon only. I thought it came out adorable.
