This is the first time I've made one of these cards, and I absolutely loved it!  Once I'd done all the measurements and planning, it was really easy.

My papers are from the DCWV The Glitter Stack.  I used a KaiserCraft scalloped circle die and 2 Creative Dies Wonky Stitches dies.  The adorable monkeys, the name Shepherd and the number 1 were all cut on my Cameo.  The birthday stamp is Mudra.

I placed monkeys on two sides on the outside of the box:

This is the inside of the outer layer:

 I then cut a slightly smaller inner layer.  This is the outward facing surface of the inner layer:

 And the inward facing side of the inner layer:

The 'exploded' box:

And the lid:

If you haven't tried one of these, give it a go!  It's far easier than it looks!

Thanks so much for popping by to have a look!
