Birthday gifts and ideas get a little harder when that child is now an adult. I liked this card file from svgcuts and decided to make it using a modern color palette.
All I needed to add to my card were some rhinestones. Very easy card to make!
One thing I enjoy doing is re-purposing an item. You can find these laminated wood boxes all over in local stores or garage sales. I have made many cardstock hat boxes but for the same price, I can buy a wooden one and decorate. And it will last longer. :)
First, I measured the width across of the box top. I drew a circle that size within my software and cut it out. I also drew a 11 inch rectangle in length, 1 inch in width and cut for my ribbon. I used faux pearls with my ribbon. Paper used is Graphic 45 Couture.
I covered the top of the box using a glue gun as our humidity in Florida is pretty high. Be careful not to use a lot of hot glue as you will have chunks of glue when dried. I use small amounts at a time and smooth flat before it dries.
