A box for my Mummy :)

Hi everyone,

I didn't think i'd have time to do this today but Morgan's having a proper nap today so i've had time to workout, bath, do uni work and craft! YAY!
So I wanted to enter the new challenge blog P3. It's all about 3d creations and I do love them but I am not too good at them so this is a perfect chance to challenge myself and get better at them :)  This month the theme is Cubes/rectangles! 
As it's Mothers day soon and we are so poor, buying presents isn't an option and I have been looking at what to do for my mum for a while now... I have made her a hanger but I wanted to make her something else too and I was looking again at the tutorials at scs and saw this box!  I think it will be the perfect size to put some of the post-it note paper in so I made one for my mum to have near her telelphone.  
I was going to add a stamp but I didn't want to cover up the dp! I didn't want to add text to it incase mum wanted to use it for something else.

I tried to punch the card with the Heart puncher but it wouldn't go through!!!  I do wish I made the hearts the same height at the lid as it's quite tricky to get to lid back on and not squash the hearts.  I wish I thought to do some embossing on it with my cuttlebug too!  I do like it though :)  My mum will like it too.

I am going to enter this for these challenges:
Quixotic - Leave it out.  I hope my tiny leaves are ok!
Simon Says - Mothers day/Girly
Totally Gorjuss - For mum
Allsorts - For mum
Paperplay - For mum
YNS - Big bows  (I hope my bow is ok, I struggled to get it any bigger and I have no idea how to do other types of bows)
