Card in a box

I found this tutorial for a card in a box & thought I'd give it a try today! It was surprisingly easy and really really cute!!! Only thing is, it's a bit difficult to mail!!! LOL So, my cousin will be getting this card! Here is the box from the front view:

The DP is Cottage Wall from SU! The image is from a Penny Black clear stamp set called "Bubbly". The ribbon is Spring Moss from Papertrey Ink and the ink & cardstock I used is Kiwi Kiss (SU).
After I took this picture, I added Crystal Effects to the balloons and stickles to the ribbon on the present! It looked blah in the picture so I glitzed it up a bit - trust me, it looks WAY better now!!!
Here is the box opened up - inside are 4 little pockets with tags inside of them. It turned out really cute & now I have some great ideas for others to make!!! It folds up really nicely and the lid plops on top to keep it all closed!!
See ya tomorrow!!!! I am getting some crafty things done tonight so I'm excited to share them with you in the next few days!!!!!
