Party in a Box! - 3D Window Box

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!
