Birthday Blast set: card, box, tag and envelope

This was one of several class projects.  

You can make a box or buy a box and then cover the front with a piece of designer paper.  My box is 10 ¾ x 7 ¾ and I cut a designer piece 10 x 7 with a layer 10 ½ x 7 1/2, and adhered to the box.  Cut a designer piece 2 x 5 ¾ for the back of the envelope.  Adhere to the back of the envelope and trim to fit.

The card: Whisper White 5 ½ x 8 ½ folded

Contrast piece (I used tempting turquoise) 4 ¼ x- 5 - cut the stars and the swirl out of this piece. Stamp your Happy Birthday greeting on the turquoise piece.  Adhere the stars and swirl. Place this piece on the folded card.  I used the greeting celebrate you and some of the stars for the inside of the card.

Second contrast piece (I used pumpkin pie), again, cut out the star and the swirl, this is to add to the box.  My piece is 4 x 3 so I have about 3/8 to fold over to attach to the box. I used tear and tape to adhere this piece to the box. 
Wrap contrasting ribbon or trim around the box, I found about 30” was right.  I used the 1/8 grosgrain and there are lot of matching choices.

Create a tag 2 x 4 ¼ (or any length really).  Use the either the tag topper punch or the new tag die with the matching die that looks like ribbon (or a bouquet!).  Round the corners and add to the box. 

Really a cute fun set !  Happy crafting - MaryKate
