Tomorrow is my niece’s 11th birthday and instead of buying her a gift she asked me if I’d go shopping with her and her mum last Wednesday. She told me to make sure I had my credit card, eek!! To limit the potential expense I decided that cash would be King for the day.
Now, I couldn’t just put the notes in an envelope could I? Of course not, I put them in this box instead…
The mini pizza boxes are so quick and easy to put together and to decorate. I used some of the Share What You Love speciality designer series paper that has a gorgeous pearlised finish and seems so very luxurious. The panel on the top measures 3 & 1/4 inches square. The side panels measure 3 & 1/4 inches by 3/4 of an inch, obviously you need 4 of these. I used my 1/2 inch punch to take out a semi-circle in the middle of the front panel before adding it to the box, so that it lines up with the notch for opening the box.
I added one of the Pearlized Doilies on top and then some of the Rich Razzelberry 1/4 inch Velvet Ribbon to add even more of a luxurious feel.
I stamped the ‘Treat Yourself’ sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink onto Whisper White card then cut it with my Everyday Label. I used the same label punch on Rich Razzleberry card and cut it in half to add to the back of the stamped one to give a little border at each end.
I used the Bitty Blooms punches to create 3 little flowers from Rich Razzleberry card and added some of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the centres of them.
My niece did think this was a pretty box but she was much more interested in the contents…
She really loves a Burt’s Bees lip balm and bought herself another one on our shopping trip!
