Authentique Hooray!  It’s Your Birthday Box with APG Telephone Vignette Die

Hello, Friends!  Do you love little boxes?  I have loved them for as long as I can remember, so making this Hooray It’s Your Birthday Box was loads of fun.  My L’il Sis is having a birthday this month, and she loves boxes, too.  This one is filled with lots of little goodies that I think will make her chuckle.  Then, when the goodies are gone she can use the box to store stuff on her work desk.  I love it when a gift just keeps on giving!

Building the Box

Here’s how the box came together:

  • First, cover the lid of an I-Phone box with papers from Authentique’s Hooray Paper Collection.
  • Then, wrap the top edge of the box with washi tape to give it a finished look.
  • Now, adhere some little box feet to the corners.
  • Die cut the Amazing Paper Grace Vignette Telephone from both Spectrum Lady Bug and Hooray patterned papers.  You will need 3 phone bases cut from patterned paper and 2 from the Lady Bug Spectrum paper.
  • Adhere the patterned papers to the Lady Bug papers so that they are slightly offset.  This creates a mat for the base and helps it to pop against the patterned papers.  You will need to cover both the front and back of the phone that is on the back side of the box.
  • Adhere the phones to the box base and fill it up with goodies!

Add ribbon and buttons to the front corners of the box if desired.

A Peek Inside

Fill the box with treats that you know the birthday girl will enjoy. I think my Sis will enjoy the little treats I tucked inside her box.

This shaker tag is so quick to make!

  • First, remove the sticker frame from the sheet and back it with clear cardstock.
  • Trace the outline of the frame onto a piece of patterned paper and trim out.
  • Then add 3 layers of 1/8″ foam strips to the back of the sticker.
  • Fussy cut the sentiment from the 3 x 4 image card.  Save the sassy lady…we’ll use her elsewhere!
  • Mat the fussy cut sentiment on the piece of patterned paper you cut out.
  • Fill the shaker cavity with sequins and beads, then adhere the patterned paper tag over the foam strips.  Press lightly to seal.
  • Trim out the birthday banner from another 3×4 card and adhere.
  • Punch a hole at the top of the tag, add ribbon and a flower.

My sis and I both love tea, so I added this tin of tea to her birthday box along with a little chocolate.  Dressing these little gifts up with designer paper and ribbon really makes them special!

This is a packet of Biscoff cookies to go with the tea.  Create the little birthday wand with a washi tape wrapped popsicle stick and stickers that have been matted on Lady Bug Spectrum Cardstock.

Snarky Birthday Card

The final addition is a little 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ top fold card made with scraps.  I’m crazy for this retro color combination…how about you?

Die cut circles and stars really work with this paper collection.  I can’t wait to give this gift to my sister!

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas you can use in your next crafty adventure.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
