Book Boxy thing!!!!!!

Papers and images from Happy Happy Birthday
 papercraft factory from Funky Hand.

Hello peeps!!
I saw a box just like this on my lovely friend Chris's blog a week ago and just had to have a try at it so I googled and found a tutorial HERE and have had a really fun time making it. When I first saw the tutorial I thought it looked a bit technical for me but once I had (....made 3 really big messes, romfl!!!....) had a little go at it....:) I got the hang of it and have made 2!!!!
So this one is todays and I am entering it in a couple of challenges. The challenges are...

Simon says stamp multifold card challenge...this was a lot of folding!!!!! 

So here's a side view of boxy......
And here is the inside.........
Oh I had so much fun making this!!!
I used the Birthday Boy colourway from the happy Happy Birthday papercraft factory, (which is due out in 5 more sleeps!!! wohooo!!) and a few of the awesome digi stamps and hobo font from the workspace. Then with the help of a bit of foam I popped out my beer mug inside the box.

There is also a bit of martha embossed zig zag punch with some hand stitching in.

So I think thats me for today unless I feel a bit makey tonight!!!! Off to make oneself a quick cuppa before I go and fetch Mo from school, he went pootling in the gates all happy again today so thats 3 days with no tears!! woohoooo, go Mo!!!!

Huge hugs and thank you for peeking!!!
