Magic box!!

Another quick post...
If you remember my previous post Curls kusudama , this is the continuation story of that.
So ..I showed the kusudama to my husband with all excitement.This is what he says 'Are you going to send just this small ball???'
Phewwwww!! But you know what, his comment helped me to try something new for the first time.To add on,that night,I came to know that my colleague's travel got postponed by one more day and leaving on the following day evening.
Yipee.. so I had few more hours to make something more specia.I was happy to make something more because my manager is more than a friend though worked together for a short period.

That night within 4hours, I made this magic box.It is 12cm X 8.5cm size box

Luckily I had one small carton

So I made my first ever exploding box though simple. (Please bear with me as is it a heavy post)
This is the lid. I decorated it with a bunch of quilled roses
There are orange flowers on the outer side of walls.All the quilled flowers including roses were made out of 130gsm paper.I manually cut the paper into 5mm strips and made this.
 Inside,I decorated with the craft punch flowers along with hand written messages.

 In the center of the box,I placed the kusudama on top of a mini 'Happy Birthday' mug.You might not be able to see the mug clearly due to my poor photography skills :(..sorry
I used the same 3 colors of the kusudama to make the box as well.Though very short time, I was very much excited with the outcome.I placed the gift box on the table and slept that night and in the morning, my husband says 'Haaa... this looks better..'..Finally ..huh :)

Hope my manager opens the box without holding the walls ;)
