Did you see my post yesterday with the alternative project ideas for the February Paper Pumpkin Kit: Many Happy Birthdays? I love using the pieces from the kit to create different projects. Here are two more ideas!
I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to create the balloons for the card, including punching one of the die cut candle flames from the kit. The balloon strings came from the Balloon Adventures stamp set and I used some additional cardstock in the following colors: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Whisper White. I added some Metallic Enamel Shapes to tie in the gold from the balloon and balance out the spacing of the balloons.
To create the party favor box, I cut apart two of the cards from the kit and added a cardstock bottom.
Here's how to make the "Celebrate" gift box:
- Cut the top off of two coordinating cards. I lined up the bottom edge at 4-7/8" on my Stampin' Trimmer. (Note: I used the part that I cut off on the Celebrate card above!)
- Score a piece of 3-5/8" x 3-5/8" Pool Party cardstock at 1/2" from each side. Cut on the score lines on opposite ends. Use strong adhesive such as Fast Fuse or Tear & Tape to secure the sides as you fold up the box bottom.
- Apply Tear & tape to the bottom of the card bases/box sides. Wrap the box sides around the base, allow the tabs to go inside the box side in opposite corners.
