Birthday box for Benaiah

Our Great Grandson Benaiah's birthday is this week.  He will be in kindergarten next fall.  He has the sweetest personality and talks non-stop. He loves to play Uno and wins a lot.  We had such a good time with him (and his family) when they visited us in Florida.  What a joy it was.
I asked him the other day what he like and he said "Darth Vader".  Now being a mother of only one daughter many years ago, I had no idea who or what that was.  Thank goodness for the Internet as I looked it up and printed off the graphics.  I made this cute box for him.

I love making this box and I have a tutorial that you can see by clicking here!  The are so many different things you can do with the box, but since this is a 6 year old boy I didn't make it too complicated or elaborate.  A great thing about the box is it folds completely flat to mail.

Boys cards are the hardest for me to make, but this one went fast and it helps when they give you a theme to work with.    Please click on the pictures to enlarge them so you can see it better.
