Charlie’s 1st Birthday Party Boxes

Charlie’s first birthday crept up on me pretty quick! On his actual birthday we went to Peppa Pig world with some friend with children we know, so I decided to bring some party boxes, instead of your traditional plastic party bags.



These boxes are available on eBay, there’s a lot of stockists but I hope one day I’ll be able to have an endless supply using a Brother scan and cut (Hint hint, my birthday is in September..)


The ribbon I used was from www.fantasticribbons.com which you must check out! Loads of variety if you’re a huge ribbons and buttons fan!



I simply just tied the ribbon on the top and stuck an image on the front. SO simple but amazingly impressive compared to a little plastic goodie bag. The kids were thrilled and I could fit loads inside including birthday cake!

Happy 1st birthday to my Charlie bear! 🙂

Pop Up Box Cards

Pop Up Box cards are a brand new craze in the crafting world right now, the more popular they get the more kits companies bring out so bring it on!

I bought a kit that was pre cut and scored by Craftwork Cards but they are very simple to make from scratch. I just folded it in the right places, and put double sided sticky tape in the right places. Sticking it together isn’t a work of origami fortunately! (I suck at Origami)

Once you have the base card you are free to decorate! My kit came with panels that i just had to guilloutine them to size and stick them on the sides. Next I popped out the embellishments and stuck them on the sides and on the cardboard sticks that all came with the kit. Decorating was really fun! Best of all they fold flat to put in an envelope and send without additional charges!

Happy crafting!
