How to Throw a Birthday Party in Less Than 1 Hour

How to Throw a Birthday Party in Less Than 1 Hour
A Design Team Project for Country Craft Creations 

If you are anything like me, I always get the last minute requests for gifts, decorations, or "ideas". And by ideas I mean, " Hey Lish, I was wanting to make something special for someone. Do you have any ideas?" I usually share a fee ideas and then I usually hear, "Oh that sounds great, can you just make one real quick?". It's a good thing I have a good sense of humor because surely they are joking...right?? (WRONG)

This is a great project almost anyone can make in about an hour. 

I received a GORGEOUS Graphic 45 prefabricated box this month in my Design Team haul for Country Craft Creations. 

I secured a ribbon to the top of the box to create a soft closure. I then added some birthday paper (It's Your Day by Michelle Coleman) I had on hand, and covered the outside as well as the inside. I used my Scortape to adhere the paper so it was quick and no waiting time for it dry. 

I ran up to the grocery store and bought a candle, a cupcake, small wine bottle, and a bar of chocolate. I had the confetti, balloon, and horn already at home. 

I used several of the scraps I had from cutting the paper to decorate the box to create custom labels for the items that went inside the box. I also used a scalloped punch and Happy Birthday stamp to really embellish the items. 

Once everything was finished I arranged it in the box and set out to give to the Birthday Girl :)
