Birthday Gift Box

Happy Weekend!  I thought it would never get here this week!  I was able to join the Sisters In Stamping again this week with a fun theme - boxes!  I found this great and easy box on the Gathering Beauty blog.  I love it because it uses a full 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock.  You can find directions on her site here.

This is the finished box I created.  I started with SU!'s new In Color cardstock stack called Fresh Florals - I used the Lemon Lime Twist colored paper and ribbon.  It's so summery and pretty! 
 I stamped the Happy Birthday image from the Label Me Pretty stamp set and punched it out with matching Pretty Label punch.  I then punched out two pieces from the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and adhered them to the back of the stamped image.
Oh,  I colored in the image using my In Color markers before I punched it out!  I only put a little piece of sticky red tape behind the top of the stamped/punched piece to secure to the lip of the box top.  This way, you can open the lid without destroying the box and it can be reused if you want.

The finished box is a very nice size:  6" long, 3" tall, and 2 1/2" deep.  I did make it more sturdy by adhering pieces of cut cardboard on the inside.   You could put a lot of very nice things inside :)

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day and weekend!  Check out the other boxes the SIS ladies made here.
