I saw the idea for a birthday box on this blog, and felt a little spark within me ignite--don't you love it when that happens? The whole concept of a Birthday Box makes me giddy--what's not to love? You can do so much with it... sorry these pics are so dark.
I put this one together for a dear friend of mine, who turned 30 this month. We've been friends for 16 years, and have seen each other through it all...three cheers for genuine friendship! I used a standard storage box, which you can buy at Michaels or JoAnns. I love the idea of a tiny birthday box, too, especially for sending elsewhere.
I organized the contents into three categories: For Making, For Organizing, and for Relaxing. I included little gifts for each category that I thought she would love, and wrapped and bundled them. I made the coffee-stained tags a few weeks ago for fun, and was happy to use them here.
I also made a small happy birthday banner with simple stamps and mini rhinestones. Because bunting rocks. :)
I've also devoted a dictionary to crafting endeavors--it was really hard to rip out that first page, but after that, it hasn't been so bad. :) I used the crumpled pages to both line the box, and wrap some gifts.
And that is how to make a birthday box. Enjoy!
