Birdies and Boxes

Wednesday, January 30, 2013


Birdies and Boxes! I just love the title of my post today for so many reasons. If you've visited my blog long enough then you know how much I love dressing up a box for gift giving. I even made a coordinating tag too!!!

And check out my inspiration...

 
I'm playing along in the current Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger Challenge. It's all about birthdays this go round. I think my altered gift box and tag are a perfect fit for the occasion. 


I was inspired by the springtime colors and the adorable birdie in the inspiration photo. I even added a Martha Stewart Craft's birdie embellie to the front of my tag. I also threw in some natural elements such as canvas and corrugated cardboard.

 
And since we are on the subject of birthdays........I want to wish my youngest daughter Rachel a Happy #17. I can't believe that she will be graduating from high school next year....sigh....
 
I'm so proud of her for making the Honor Roll this year. More importantly, I'm so proud of the "Student's Achieving Excellence" awards that she has received recently. Several of her teachers noted that she is always respectful, courteous, and always helpful to her peers. I am one PROUD MAMA!!!!! 
 
Happy Birthday Rae!!!
