So I used a gift box template from my template stash, that most closely resembled the sketch as I could get. I used "gift box with handle" that I found on Homemade-Gifts-Made-Easy.Com. I glued the template onto a really lovely scrapbook paper and cut it out.
Here's a close up of the front decorating:
Because this box template didn't have a flap as required in the sketch, I cut out a piece (half circles) of white paper, and another piece of the same scrapbook paper that I used to make the box with, with fancy scissors, and glued them in layers on the front of the box.
I then glued some ribbon lace to the top, and glued small white pearly beads to the ribbon as well.
I wanted to add a beaded dangly to the box as well, so I made this one, that I glued to the lace with a glue dot:
