Anything But A Card at Catch The Bug

Today is anything but a card Monday at Catch-The-Bug and it's my turn for a project.  I actually like how this easel card box turned out, I think it is the perfect little gift box for a little trinket or a gift card or money and I think it would make a perfect tooth fairy box.  I used Kidz Sitter 3, colored with copics and the paper is from Doodlebug.
