Birthday Box

Feb 18, 2011

This is a small gift box for a spe­cial birth­day some­one. I think my favorite part is the vial with the can­dle inside and the make a wish jour­nal­ing strip wrapped around it. My hus­band Alan was look­ing at me a tad bit strange­ly as I was burn­ing down the can­dle so it would fit inside. He is not a visu­al per­son so he could not fig­ure out what in the world I was doing. But once he saw the fin­ished project it all made sense to him and he loved it. I real­ly like the tis­sue tape bow too… it is cov­ered in crys­tal coarse glit­ter and out­lined with Plat­inum Stick­les. Any­thing birth­day themed has to have glit­ter. Ha who am I kid­ding, it’s more like any­thing I cre­ate has to have glit­ter. But real­ly the top of this box is so pret­ty. It just sparkles and sprak­les.

I was super hap­py when I dis­cov­ered the Alpha Parts let­ters were the pre­fect size to go all around the lid. These can be paint­ed too. I paint­ed the let­ters I used on the “Live Life with Joy” tag.

The papers are from the Paper Stash ~ Lost & Found. This pad has so many won­der­ful designs to cre­ate with… pret­ty much a lit­tle bit of some­thing for every­one. The wood­en beads for the feet of the box are paint­ed with Gold Adiron­dack Acrylic Paint and Dis­tress Crack­le Paint.

Sup­plies Used: Corked Vial, Alpha Parts ~ Newsprint, Paper Stash ~ Lost & Found, Tis­sue Tape ~ Sketch Book, Dis­tress Crack­le Paint, Adiron­dack Acrylic Paint, Plat­inum Stick­les, Crys­tal Coarse Glit­ter, Birth­day Can­dle

This is the last of my CHA projects. Next week I will do a recap of the cuffs I made as I have had so many peo­ple ask me about them. Wish­ing you all a won­der­ful week­end.
