A week or so ago, I participated in a little contest featuring a certain suite from the Occasions Catalog. I was assigned the "Party Animal" suite. I was kind of stumped on what to create with the Party Animal DSP and Window Box since I knew the other demos received the same items. How would I make something really different?
I decided to cut a #5 in the lid. Why 5? Good question!!
No really, I'm still wondering that myself.
Our middle son turned FOUR last Monday, not FIVE. I must have been sleep deprived.
These little Party Animal Embellishments charms are so adorable! They come two ways - blue party hats and red balloons. Simple slide a little twine through and you're all set.
Now because I put the 5 upward on the lid, I wasn't happy with the way the lid opened. This is what happens when I'm trying to stamp at 11pm long after kids are in bed and that's really where I should've been too! So I decided that it could open downward and I would create a little cake on the inside.
I took three different size strips of Emerald Envy cardstock, rolled it up and stapled the back. I cut the 5 little candles from one of the pieces of Party Animal DSP.
I finished the box up with a tiny little envelope to hold some money.
I think these Window Box Thinlit Dies are going to be a hit! I can't wait to create some more items with it!
Be sure to come back on Thursday for the very first ARTISAN BLOG HOP! So excited!!
Have a great day!
