Paper Crafts Magazine Presents: The 350 Cards & Gifts Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the 350 Cards & Gifts Blog Hop! I am excited to be part of this blog hop celebrating this new amazing special issue:



Every designer has prepared a paper-crafted birthday item for your inspiration. Inspired by Pinterest, I created a box full of items to send to someone you are not able to celebrate with in person. A birthday in a box:


This box contains everything needed for a little birthday celebration:


I forgot to take a photo of the cupcake topper, but here it is in action:


And a closer look at the card:


What do you think? Wouldn't it be a sweet surprise to receive such a box for your birthday?
