Happy Birthday baby…

It was my daughter’s birthday this week and I wanted something really special for her – something with a bit of a “wow”.

I saw the instructions for a “fantasy box” on the In Love With Stamping website and thought this would be the perfect thing. I had so much fun making it, and it certainly seemed to have the wow factor when it was finished!

I also made a gift card holder for her iTunes vouchers, and a “birthday cake” – both of which we learned how to make at the Stampin’ Up convention this year.

I used one of my favourite Stampin’ Up designer papers which came from the sunny day simply scrappin’ kit, sadly now retired, but I just love the bright colours and patterns – gorgeous! I even wrapped one of her presents in the designer paper so that everything co-ordinated – extravagant but so worth it! Here’s how her gifts looked:

And here’s what the fantasy box looks like when it’s opened:


I filled each box with small items such as earrings, a compact and some chocolate. She loved it!

Stampin’ Up! supplies used:

Cardstock: tempting turquoise, regal rose, whisper white; Stamp set: party this way, big bold birthday; Ink: tempting turquoise; Punches: large and small tags, ½” circle, ¾” circle , scallop circle, scallop trim border, word window; Accessories: sunny day simply scrappin’ kit (retired), mini glue dots, snail adhesive, tombow multi purpose glue, stampin’ dimensionals, white gel pen, whisper white satin ribbon, silver elastic cord.

Additional items: heavy duty card taken from some packaging, battery operated tea-light.

Thanks for stopping by today
