birthday book box

Say that headline three times quickly, hehe!

The wee one is going to a party today and we bought the birthday girl a book. I decided to make a gift box instead of just wrapping it.

And I looked around to see what challenges I could aim for. I came up with:

Whiff of Joy - sketch

Spoon full of sugar - 3 designer papers, 3 buttons

ABC challenge - U is for unused stash (I've had this party girl image for ages but never used it, shame on me)

Cute Card Thursday - someone special

Cupcake craft - buttons

Papertake Weekly - shiny, sparkly, special

One stitch at a time - going dotty

Crafts and me - anything but a card

Quixotic challenges - make your own flowers

Stamp and Create - ribbon

Sukkersött - 3D effect

Stamp something - celebrate something

Jättesöt. Kul att få en ask istället för att få presenten inslagen i ett papper.
