Using My Tools Thursday # 40 -Birthday in a Box

Welcome to my newest Using My Tools post. So for new friends and visitors Using My Tools posts are crafty creations where I pull something out of my stash that at one time, I thought I just "HAD" to have and finally use it. This time it's all these various cut outs from Cricut Cartridges that really go neglected. I'm not sure why because I absolutely love the end results of all the projects I create with these cut files. 

I''ve made another box card! I know they are all over the crafting world right now but they are so much fun to make and so I could help but make another one. If you have made one just yet make sure to check out the tutorial here and many more tutorials under my tutorial tab here.
So this card went to my neice. I hear that when she opend the envelope and took out the card she was a bit puzzled as how to open it and eventualy gave up and dropped it on the table. Good thing because when she did it opend into the box. lol It's still displayed on her mantle months later. I know for every crafter it's nice to hear our handmade gifts are displayed and appreciated.
Here's a close up of the elements inside.
