Only 3 simple steps to remember!
I gotta tell you when I open that GIGANTIC box of paper crafting supplies I was taken by all the bright colors and decorative layers. I started thinking INSIDE the box! With the holidays just around the corner, wouldn't a suppy of fancy cards (for special occasions) in a keepsake box make the perfect gift for someone?
I started by selecting by selecting my pink card base, decorative layers and embellishments (and a birthday candle J). I decided to also use a orange card as a decorative layer.
First I trimmed an inch off both sides of one side of the orange card.
Then apply glue dots to the back of the orange piece.
Next add the yellow decorative layer.
And the fun part… playing with embellishments. Add a flower…
Or two or three! It's easy to stack them– you can't go wrong.
Use a small piece of the orange paper you trimmed and trim again. Tie in a bow around the candle.
Then the finishing touch.
Slip a flower embellishment behind the paper part and for the grand finale… add a Happy Birthday sentiment sticker.
To make the birthday card extra special– only the most celebratory packaging will do! Warning– there are skittles involved…
Keeping with the upbeat theme of the birthday card, I chose some brights from a card base package in the David Tutera Paper Crafts Celebrate line, as well as a decorative layer, embellishments and a sentiment — "Celebration Time…" and a brightly painted box to place the card as well as some sweet treats.
Punch circles in the paper with a 1 1/2 punch.
Play around with the circles on the box.
Leaving some space for the decorative layer.
The detail on the decorative layer is so — HAPPY — I don't know how else to describe it!
Using thin glue dots, secure the circles and the decorative layer, gently folding it over the edge of the box.
Layer some lovely flowers from the David Tutera Paper Crafts Celebrate embellishment collection…
Add some small flower embellishments to the circles for added dimension.
Place the David Tutera Paper Crafts Celebrate line sentiment… ""Celebration Time" on the box, backed with a think strip of paper from a card base package.
Final step– grab some fun size candy… I had to go with Skittles for the bright colors– and fill the box up with them… placing your card on top so when the birthday girl or boy opens the box… they will see your fun card and the treats!
