Happy Birthday Matchbox and a prize

I'm participating in Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Blog Hop today - I'm so freakin' excited! Just to celebrate this fun occassion I tried out one of Kelleigh's new templates - Matchbox Template Set. This is the large version and it came together really quickly. I can see lots of potential for this box!!!

Here's my Happy Birthday version featuring Traci Reed's Happy Go Silly kit (Sweet Shoppe)




I simply used Kelleigh's easy template as a clipping mask to digitally cut out the box template from the brown bag paper. I then created a seperate accent rectangle for both the bottom box and the outside wrap. I printed all items on presentation paper and then used a paper trimmer to cut out. I used a piece of light green cardstock and my new scallop punch to create the green border for the wrap. The happy birthday to you circle was created in Photoshop Elements using pre-made circles and the alpha from Happy Go Silly. For assembly I simply used glue stick and double stick tape. Really - a cute project that can be done in little to no time!

Check out the Matchbox template at The Digichick. It's on sale for only $2.97 - what a steal!

I plan to tuck an I-tunes gift card inside so Katie (10) can give this to her BFF Erica for her birthday this weekend. Do you think this is cute enough to impress an eleven year old? I hope so...I wouldn't want to be the "uncool" mom!
