Happy Birthday Card-in-a-Box

Have you seen a 'card in a box' yet? I've seen quite a number of variations of these, and just had to try one myself - but had to wait for a special occasion - Happy birthday, Kelly! The box itself is fairly quick to put together (I used this tutorial), but the decorating can be as detailed or as simple as you want.

I included the side view so you can see that you just build each section and then attach onto the little tabs you add in the middle of the box. It was super fun to make - the only suggestion I have is to stamp on each piece before punching/cutting it out. The solid coloured pieces just don't pop as nicely as the ones with ink on them ;)
