Paper Chain Birthday Countdown

My Friend Jennifer's Birthday is October 26th. Her birthday is a big deal and she makes sure everyone at works knows it : ). I made her a paper chain countdown to put at her desk. I used Cricut Storybook for the base, Frame, and Birthday Girl. I used Doodle charms cupcake. Misc paper was used for the chain. I added 3 decorative clip ons (26, J, and Happy Birthday) using a mini clothespin. Stamps: Stampin up Think Happy Thoughts and Misc letters and numbers. I used Stampin up 1 1/4" circle punch and scalloped punch.

Ga Ga Birthday Box

I made this gift box for my boss at work. He LOVES Lady Ga Ga. I used a checkbook box as the base, covered it with decorative paper. Made 2 paper rosette's (black 1 1/2" & Sheet music 1 1/4") I used a chip board star covered with glitter glue. I punched a magazine picture for the center using a 1 1/4" punch. I printed the "Happy Birthday Scott" onto cream paper. I plan to fill with red/cream tissue paper, his favorite chewing gum, and a gift card to Starbucks.... It came together quickly and I'm happy with the way it turned out. I hope he likes it!

Lady Bug Gift Box

Along with my friends Alyssa, Marie (pictured above), and Rona I made these little gift boxes. I found the gift boxes at Dollar Tree 8 for $1.00. We used punches to create the body and free handed the antenna. We filled them with Candy and a special note and gave them to our friends and co-workers. They loved them! Really quick inexpensive idea with cute results.
2" circle Black for body (Crimped)
2" circle Red for the wings
Standard hole punch for the spots
1" circle punch for the head
White Gel pen for outlining (we did a _ . pattern)
small goggly eyes
