It's My Birthday Blog Hop Recap

If you'd like one more chance at Rachelle's Birthday Blog Hop Grand Prize, click here!  Here is a recap of my projects this weekend (with extra details about the gift boxes):

Day 1 - Retro card

Day 2 - Quilt Card

Day 3 - Gift Boxes

I found these cute gift boxes at the thrift store.  It was a package of 12 gift boxes designed to look like wedding dresses for $.89!  I used one box and made a template for the dresses.  The dresses are cut out of paper I had left over from other projects.  The dresses are cut 1/4" shorter than the boxes and ribbon or paper is added under the dress to look like a petticoat.  I added ribbon, brads embossing and glitter. and other embellishments to accessorize.  The key is to think outside of the box. ;)
