Cuttlebug Challenge

This week cuttlebug challenge is to make something other than a card using cuttlebug folders.
This is a box which I have been intending to alter for sometime - it was one of my cat's Christmas presents (don't laugh - my cat often gets more Christmas presents than I do).
Anyway - thanks to this challenge I've eventually got round to doing it.
I used the Spots and Dots folder on core-dinations paper and then gently sanded of the top layer. It took ages, now I just have a fine layer of dust everywhere to clean up. I added a flower to the top and a label to the side, left blank until I decide what to put.
This is the best picture I managed to get of the cat who gets the presents - see that evil look in his eye - he hates having his photograph taken and usually runs and hides in the wardrobe as soon as the camera comes out. He was a rescue kitten who was taken from his 'Mummy' at two weeks old so he gets forgiven quite a bit (too much I think).
