Birthday Boy card & Box

Good morning!

It's Caleb's 6th birthday today and he is so excited!  It was hard to get him to go to school this morning, all he wanted to do was play with his presents.  When he's tucked  in bed at night he loves to suggle up to his special soft toys that he calls his 'buddies'!  This year Phoebe wanted to give him a new buddy, so I made a little box to put it in.

The lid of the box (Don't know if Phoebe would agree with  the sentiment all of the time!)
Matching card
The set along with the 'new buddy lion' peeping out from behind!

The box is made using the Sizzix Bigz Die ~ takeout box.  The paper is from the DCWV Boy Stack.  The little stamps 'best brother ever' are from a set of Elzybells clear stamps.  They are so useful, you can make loads of sentiments and sentences from them.  The handle is a strip of kraft cardstock and  the edges trimmed with Dovecraft pinking scissors, I then added a strip of designer paper along the centre.  I pierced holes in each side of the box and attached the handle with little orange brads so it can be folded back to open the box.
