Birthday in a Box

Beautiful weather here in CO! My Mom, sister & I had a garage sale this weekend. I met a lot of interesting people & managed to sell a few things. We had a few problems with people stealing. Can you imagine...stealing at a garage sale! I was so surprised that people would do that. I was raised here but I have been living in Nebraska for the last 34 yrs. There, you could get away with a "on your honor" garage sale, where they total up their items & leave the money in a jar on their way out. Really... I think you could! Not here though. But, a good share of the people were friendly & honest.
I have been getting my sister into my hobby of paper crafting. We have been having a great time making all kinds of stuff.
Here is a "Birthday in a Box", complete with a tag, candle & a cupcake. I used the digi "Cupcake & Roses" by Designed 2 Delight. If you would like to make your own, you can download the pdf. HERE for free. This "Round Top Box" comes together very easy & makes a great birthday gift!
Have a great weekend & thanks for stopping!


  1. I am in the middle of creating something with this round top box too! Mine is for a DT post so will be a few days.

    Love your cupcake in a box!

    Stealing at a garage sale???? That is crazy!

  2. Hi Bridget!! What a cute birthday box!!! Love it. I CANNOT imagine someone stealing at a garage sale but I guess I have seen people taking from the Goodwill Truck so I guess if they need it that bad - so be it. I am headed to Colorado Wednesday for just overnite (taking my son to the airport) but will only be there overnight.

    Take care!

  3. Hi Bridget! Lucky person you! On our last garage sale, we had to pay people to haul stuff off after free labels were attached.

    Beautiful box! Clever you!
