Birthday Treats by Laura C.

Give a special someone an extra Happy Birthday, with a handmade gift set! The card is a 5”x5” base in sky blue with a dark pink 4 ¼” x 4 ¼” layer next, a light pink 4”x4” piece embossed (I used the Cuttlebug Victoria A2 folder), then the dark pink and white cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Square and Classic Square. The cupcake was stamped on the American Crafts Pink Glitter paper and sky blue cardstock and cut out. Then the card was assembled, adding finishing touches of a candle, bow and bling, and the happy birthday sentiment framed by the Spellbinder Fancy Tag die cut made with pink cardstock.

The box is a recycled ribbon package. (Mine was from Cosmo Cricket.) The lesson here: never throw out your packaging! It could be your next project base. I cut my cardstock pieces to fit this package specifically, and “blinged” it up with Twinkle Jewels, Rhinestones, a Sakura Stardust pen (LOVE!!) and Sakura Glaze pens in blue, red, and yellow. I used the same Spellbinder Fancy Tag die cut to top off this box of chocolately treats!

This is another great way to recycle. Anyone would love such a wonderful gift!
