Welcome to the It's a Wrap Birthday Blog Hop
featuring the Thankful Thursday Design Team.
Hopefully you just came from the talented Kim.
If not please head on over to see our hop hostess
Jenny so you can start from the beginning. I wouldn't
want you to miss out on the fantastic project for today.
In my family we don't have any birthdays until August
but, we do have an 8th grade graduation in 2 weeks.
My daughter Michaela will be off to High School next
year and I decided to make a special box for her gift.
I can't say what she will be getting because she reads
my blog but, trust me she is going to love it.
To make this box I cut out 2 circles at 3 inches and
2 circles out at 3 1/4 inches. The sides are 2 strips of
3 x 12 inch paper that I scored at 1 inch. After you
fold the scored side up cut slits about 1/4 inch wide
in the 1 inch section. Then take one of the circle and
add your favorite adhesive to the out side of the circle.
Roll up the strips to make them more flexible. The
strips are then added to the outside of the circle until
it meets the other end. Glue the other circle inside the
to hide the slits. Now repeat for the other sided of the
box. For the top I cut a 5 inch square and glued it to
the 3 1/4 inch circle. The numbers are cut at 1 1/2
inches. I decided that they were to simple so, I decided
to add some super fine glitter. Now I know why I never
use glitter. It is EVERY WHERE. But, I do have to
say it does look pretty. I then pop dotted the numbers
for lift. I made a simple tassel with embody floss.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my Graduation box for
todays hop. Now please head on over to our Guest
Designer Candace to see the wonderful project
she has made for todays hop.
