In my humble opinion Gnome Boxes is a software suited to demonstrate virtualization for inexperinced users. It tends to hide a lot of the internal workings from the user and doesn't give them enough choices.

For any real work with virtualization I would recommend using the graphcal tool virt-manager and getting used to the command line tools like virsh, qemu-img etc.
