Card box using Circle Circus.....

Good morning crafty peeps! Well today is another busy day at work, but going well so far (fingers crossed it continues). I thought I would share with you a box I adapted from a template I brought from the lovely and very talented Val Moody. I needed it to fit in many more cards, so I tweaked it and here's the finished project!
My Boss' Daughters birthday was early August and I wanted to make her a gift that was not only nice to look at, but also very practical... so filling it was so many assorted cards meant she would never be caught out if it was someone's birthday! Well that's the plan anyway... So here is a close up of the front panel. The recipient loved the boxed filled with 20 cards and envelopes, and I know I will be making so many more boxes like this one! Thank you Val for the inspiration!
Stampin' Up! Supplies used:
Stamp set - Circle Circus
