Altered Vacation Fund Box!!!

Hey Gals!!!
How have you been!!!Well life had kept me really busy in last few days,with lots of craft workshops,my craft store,plus a few social events.Anyways I am not complaining,though I am really ENJOYING to the fullest.
Today I want to share a box I made for my daughter a few months back, when she asked me for a Disney land trip as her Birthday Present.I made this box for her as I wanted her to learn the value of money.As seeing others she was getting habituated to demanding.So I made this for her And told her to start Saving all what she could.I even encouraged her by giving her a few rewards.And I could not believe the savings she did.That even gave me a lesson which I was trying to give to my daughter, but was not following it myself.Sometimes Kids also teach us alot.So enough of my BLAH BLAH BLAH....Here is the box
 The teddy is made using various punches,The flowers are daisy die cuts,The alphas are cut using my sizzix dies and glitter foam sheets(available in my craft store).The Striped label is hand cut,The butter fly is recycled from my daughters clips.

                                                              This was the box I altered.
