For a very special friend!

I knew someone's birthday was coming up and i wanted to make it special.  I am a fan of altering things and when i came across this box at a charity shop, i thought, wow..what can i do with that?  So when the time came to make this special gift, i pulled out this easel box.

Now i just wish i could figure out how to duplicate this box because i like this concept a lot.

I treated the cover of this box just like it was a card...it actually is a picture frame that i covered up.
From the markings on the bottom it is from Hallmark Card Co.  Measures about 5.5".

I have used a sweet stamp from  Lili of the Valley called Milly Flower Power.   The dies i've used are Joy Craft Butterfly border, Lifestyle crafts Lacey frame 8 and the pop up butterflies are from Spellbinders.
I have another friend that makes these awesome paper flowers and i purchased these from her as the money goes back into helping to rehabilitate wildlife in MA.  I also have used an embossing dotted folder.

Copics used:
skin- YR000, 00, R20
hair- E50, 53, 55
flower/shoes/leggings- V000, 12, 04
dress, flower center- G20, 21, 24
