Birthday Favor Box

     It's Day 3 at Catch the Bug's 10th Birthday and because it's Monday, the theme is the usual "Anything But a Card" so I did small party favor boxes.  These can be filled with candies and given to the party goers as something to take home with them.  The one I photographed was made specifically for the birthday boy with an additional sentiment.  The favor boxes are 2" x2" x1" deep.

     The image is Bugaboo Stamps' new "Hay There" horse.

Colored with ProMarkers
Cut with rectangle die from Spellbinders
Double bow tied using burlap twine
Sentiment printed and cut with QuicKutz die

     Has anyone noticed how birthdays always feel like a whole new beginning to a child, especially one turning 10 or 13 - the magic of seeing double digits or being a teen - but they stop feeling like a new beginning when you are facing the 50s, 60s, 70s, and beyond?  lol

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
