A little box

Recyclage : cette boîte est faite en carton de boîte de céréales,  peint à l'acrylique puis teint à la teinture à bois. Pour plus de renseignements sur l'effet faux-bois, vous pouvez aller voir le tutoriel que j'ai suivi ici

Recycling : this box is made of cardboard from a cereal box, that I painted with acrylic paint and then colored with wood stain. For more info on the faux-wood effect, the tutorial I followed is here.
I would like to enter my box in the  W for Wrapping challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenge and in the Three R's chalenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge (Rose, Ribbon, Red). I know there's no Christmas image on my box, but the fact that I used red and green colors and that I intend to use the box for a Christmas gift should be enough to consider it as a Christmas project, what do you think?
I'd also like to enter this box in Tuesday Alchemy "Anything but a card" challenge.
