Happy Birthday Boxes....

Shelley here to share with you a quick way to make some fun birthday surprise boxes using Le Box Boutique's Kraft Natural Gift Boxes, washi tape, and twine!

 First I took one of the kraft boxes and completely covered it with washi tape!! Look how fun and festive it is! It actually looks like a wrapped present! Next, I wrapped twine around the box and added a tag. I decided it needed a little something fun so I made some pom poms using the Le Box Boutique's twine. Go HERE for a great tutorial. Very easy and it just adds a spunky element to the box!

To make the cute box beneath the washi box I simply wrote with a white Signo pen "Happy Birthday to you.." and repeated it across the box on all sides while the box was flat. Simple... but I so love the idea of being able to personalize it to any event or for a specific someone! Again, I added wrapped twine and a twine created pom pom for fun!

I loved the two boxes but wanted one more piece to add to the Happy Birthday message. I had some vintage spools handy and decided to cover one with three different colors of washi tape. I placed a small piece of styrofoam in the center of the spool. Finally, I created washi flags and attached them to a piece of wire and placed them inside the spool center.

There you have it! A quick and fun way to decorate and personalize these amazing kraft boxes! Thanks for stopping by! Shelley
