“What is your all-time favorite birthday treat?”
(Mine is my great-grandmother’s chocolate cake).
Now, onto crafting! The base of this project is one of Karen Foster Design’s popular 3-D Countdown Calendars, which is a set of 25 mini drawers that can be used in lots of different ways, in addition to counting down to a special occasion. I thought it would make a fun party decoration – the drawers could hold favors for the guests to take home, or be used as part of a game or scavenger hunt to hold clues – lots of possibilities!
I started by covering the front of each drawer and sides of the box with papers from the Birthday Collection.
Then came the fun part – adding assorted decorations to each drawer.
I really like using things that add texture, such as these colorful brads,
as well as adding dimension with stickers or foam adhesive.
I might have gone a bit overboard with the glitter glue, but couldn’t help myself.
My favorite embellishment would have to be these new Party Bubble Brads – I especially liked the balloons, which I tied with Scrapper’s Spool Floss.
