Birthday box

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a nice and easy one: Anything Goes!  We know how much everyone loves this one.  Over the weekend, our fearless leader and owner of Repeat Impressions, Wendy, celebrated her birthday.  I posted the card I made for her on Saturday, but I also created this cute little gift box that holds something special (I can't tell what, 'cause she doesn't know, yet.)  
 I thought it was going to be difficult to figure out the dimensions and went looking for a tutorial.  But I ended up just measuring the item, added 1/2 inch for the flaps and actually it was quite easy.
 I decorated the box to coordinate with the card.  Here are the two of them together:
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week.  You can actually still play along with any of our challenges from this month, but you only have until Tuesday as it is now the end of the month.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Birthday" and "Flower Cluster Outline"
Dies/punches: Spellbinders "Scalloped Tags"; PTI lowercase alphabet; Fiskars "Apron Border" punch

Retro Rubber #83--anything goes (I have had the Happy Birthday stamp for almost 3 years and the little flowers for about a year and a half)
Simon Says Stamp Monday--inside the box (I have a special treat inside the box)
Scor-pal #46--all things bright and beautiful
Through The Purple Haze #142--anything goes with the twist of birthday
Crafty Calendar--add a tag or make one
Incy Wincy Designs--nor more than 3 colors (I used yellow, blue and green)
Creative Knockouts #238--border time (punched border)
Southern Girls--die cuts

Your card and box for Wendy are delightful, so springy and cheerful. Like how coordinated they are and the tags with the "W" on it!

What a cherished set you've made for giving a special friend! I love that each is personalized with her initial and I just love the striped papers and coordinating flowers on both. Great job, I'm sure Wendy loved them - along with what was inside the box :)
