Winter box TUTORIAL ❤ la-la land crafts

Today I’m sharing with you a tutorial on how to make a small Winter box. The idea is not originaly mine, I got it here, but I did make a few changes and most of all, I used la-la land crafts stamps and dies to decorate it.
What you need:
kraft cardstock 
white cardstock
design paper
drawer handle
embellishments (paper flowers, lace flower)
white crackle paint
strong adhesive
tube (can be from any kind of tape)
scoring board
scor tape 
la-la land crafts items you need:
Step 1:
Take a 2″ high and 3 2/8″ wide tube. The tube can be from duck tape or from any other tape. I got mine from the post office. You can buy very long tubes for sending large rolled stuff. I took it to the carpenter and he cut these for me. You can easily cut it with a crafting knife.
Make two marks on the top of the tube which should be 2″ apart and cut down with scissors. You get 2×2″ big piece of the tube.
Step 2:
Cut two piecec of cardstock, one 2″ x 12″ and the other one 2″ x 5″. I used I love winter design paper from Echo park.
Apply adhesive on the back.
Step 3:
Carefuly adhere the smaller piece of the tube to the smaller piece of the design paper. Adhere it to the middle of it and then fold both pieces to the inside, so that it gets covered all arround.
Do the same with the bigger piece of the tube.
Step 4:
Cut 5 2/8″ x 6″ rectangle from kraft paper and score at 1 3/4″ and 3.5″ (the shorter side). Then turn the paper arround and score at 1 3/4 and 4 1/4″.
Cut like on the picture.
Make folds.
Step 5:
Apply strong adhesive on all flaps and on the front of the drawer.
Step 6:
If you wish to decorate the inside too, then cut:
1x     1 5/8″ x 1 5/8″ (red design paper)
2x     1 5/8 x 2 4/8″ (red design paper)
2x     1 5/8″ x 1 5/8″ (striped design paper)
3x     1 5/8 x 2 4/8″ (striped design paper)
Adhere the squares and rectangles cut from design paper to the inside and to the outside.
Before you adhere the smaller squares on the inside you have to adhere the flaps first!!!!! 
Step 7:
Make a hole in the centre of the smaller tube piece and to the front side of the drawer (the one with adhesive).
Take the smallest die from Pierced scalloped circles and cut it out from kraft paper. Make a hole in the middle.
Step 8:
Place the drawer handle through the die cut, tube and drawer.
…. the inside ….
Step 9:
Make die cuts from kraft paper and design paper. Stamp the sentiment on a small piece of white cardstock.
Stamp the image, colour it up and then die cut it with stitched circles die. Adhere striped circles to pierced scalloped circles.
Step 10:
Take strong liquid adhesive and apply it to the top and bottom edge of the bigger piece of the tube. Start with bottom first and then place the pierced scalloped circle on. When dried do the same with the bottom (stripes must face up on both).
 Step 11:
Decorate the top. At the end apply some white crackle paint to the edges and glitter to the scarf.
