Graphic 45 Inspired Book Box Recycle Craft

I have a couple of book boxes that I bought from TK MAXX. But the idea, to make a book box, never occured to me till I watched a video where the crafter decorated the graphic 45 book box. Bless YouTube for the "suggested videos", and I landed on a tutorial which showed how to make the book box. Here is my first attempt made from coco pops snack bar box.

The second one, I made from some scrap pieces of a kids craft supplies box.
It was again a haphazard try. But I am pretty pleased with the result, though my daughter says that next time you should try to make it Really look like a book :). The cover and back pages are from Graphic 45 Mon amour collection and so are the stickers. Papers on the inside are from Recollections. Made an accordion fold heart which I learned to make through an amazing video. Glued a clay piece on the spine. I had thought of glueing clay corners but forgot and instead put lace on the edges. Many a  time I end up ruining the project because of my forgetfulness.

I am entering this Graphic 45 inspired Book Box  in the following challenges :
