These new papers from Bo Bunny are bright, colorful and perfect for any birthday page. Here I made a layout of my nephew's 3rd Birthday. I added bright ribbon and buttons and wrote the journaling from the point of view of my nephew. I found journaling this way to be more interesting and fun than just writing, "Clint turned 3 and we had a big party." Also, I printed the journaling on a transparency and painted on the back side.
This page is an homage to my favorite part of a birthday party, the cake. I love all kinds of cake and thought it would be fun to creat a layout dedicated soley to the delictable pastry. I used the sewing machine to stitch down the side and added a little Hero Arts "Bling" around the title and journaling. I also used the Sizzix machine at Paper Pals to make the circles and cut-outs.
I had just enough paper to cover a box I found in the recyling pile at work. It was really easy. I just covered the box, inked the edges and added a small ribbon on the top and viola! a little gift box or party favor box.
