It was my daughter’s birthday this week and I wanted something really special for her – something with a bit of a “wow”.
I saw the instructions for a “fantasy box” on the In Love With Stamping website and thought this would be the perfect thing. I had so much fun making it, and it certainly seemed to have the wow factor when it was finished!
I also made a gift card holder for her iTunes vouchers, and a “birthday cake” – both of which we learned how to make at the Stampin’ Up convention this year.
I used one of my favourite Stampin’ Up designer papers which came from the sunny day simply scrappin’ kit, sadly now retired, but I just love the bright colours and patterns – gorgeous! I even wrapped one of her presents in the designer paper so that everything co-ordinated – extravagant but so worth it! Here’s how her gifts looked:
And here’s what the fantasy box looks like when it’s opened:
I filled each box with small items such as earrings, a compact and some chocolate. She loved it!
