Welcome to Day 1 of Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to Jillian’s Birthday Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Yolie.  If you just happened to stumble upon this hop, please be sure to go back to Jillian's blog so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects we have to share. Each day I will be posting a new project with new blog candy for you to win so be sure to come back each day.

For my first project I made a birthday box. Something small could go in it or maybe if you were having a party one could go on the table for each of your guests filled with candies. I topped this one with a flower however a bow would have been just as nice. They say good things come in small packages and so this little one should delight anyone who receives it.

 I did the two opposite sides with the same colors and decoration.
 I thought the flower would go nice on it.
 Here is a look at the how the top closes without the flower.

White cardstock
Copic Markers
Sizzix Pedal Cone Die
Stamps from Hero Arts
Flower from Recollections

I hope you enjoyed seeing the little box. As I said, good things do come in small packages and so this little box brings us to something good...your first chance to win some candy.  You must be a follower and leave me a comment telling me what was the best thing you ever received for your birthday. (If you do not leave me a way to get in touch with you, you have 3 days to claim your prize). For an extra chance Jillian is trying to get 300 fans on Facebook. If you aren’t a fan, please like her at then come back and leave me another comment saying you are a fan. 

Since my project was dealing with texture to both the sight and touch (stickels, flower, etc) I have some fun textures for you to add to your project with these Martha Stewart Stamps. 

Now off you go to check out some more fantastic projects...your next stop is Deanne

In case you get lost along the way here is the line up.

  7. The box is adorable! I received a cell phone a few years ago as a Birthday gift. It was by far the best that I recall.
