A birthday box

This little box is the first project I’ve made for a Birthday Party in a Box I’m putting together for the daughter of one of my hostesses. I love this stamp set – and it’s just perfect for a group of girl stampers!

I designed the box by stamping the image first and then working from there. My new grid paper made it easy – and as long as you keep the sides the same width as the base, you should have no problems putting your box together.

I shred my own tissue paper in a paper shredder - I'm far too tight to fork out for the pre-shredded stuff!
