Birthday Card Box!


Today I'm going to share a photo/card box that I decorated as a gift for my older sister
 ... shhhh, don't tell her ... I haven't given it to her yet :)

I am planning to give her a few boxes of hand-made cards to have at her disposal ... and thought that the following box would be perfect to decorate for holding birthday cards!

As you can see I kept the top of the box flat (along with the sides) ... this way she can stack the boxes on top of each other without having to worry!

I used banners on both the front and side to add the celebratory effect and used buttons and ribbon on the front to add that extra dimension.  Frosted Designs posted a challenge to use banners on a project ... so I thought this would be a great entry!

The box looks great full of cards ... and keeps things nice and organized!

Thanks for stopping in today!
Check in tomorrow for some more creations!

  5. This is such a great idea for a gift!! I love the decorations on the box, and good thinking on leaving the top and sides flat for easy storage! Those banners are fabulous too!
