Pop up box card

This is my first attempt at a pop up box. I have used the patterned papers that came in the latest Quick Cards Made Easy. I thought the papers were perfect for my father-in-law so I decided to try this to make him something completely different. I have made the box and covered all the panels with the patterned paper. I have die cut various elements to embellish my box. I die cut a Cheery Lynn trellis and cut into it to cut it to size, I added the flourish to this, also cut with a Cheery Lynn die, I completed this panel with flowers cut with a punch,  I die cut the wheel barrow, watering can, fork and spade with Lea'bilities dies. I cut grass to add to the wheelbarrow and tiny flowers. The birdhouse and bird are cut using Marianne dies. The dragon fly is cut using a free die. I attached some of the flowers and the bird with acetate.
