*Birthday Cake Box*

I am loving altering boxes lately!! Can ya' tell?? This is another Birthday Cake Box that I made for a customer. Thanks Judy! ;) I like how girly this one looks! Except, I just noticed in the pic that a pearl is missing on the body of one of the butterflies!! That is bugging me! So I will call my customer and have a pearl mailed out to her. I won't be able to sleep tonight if I don't!! LOL I'm not kidding though!! ;) I am crazy!!! hehe Anywho, on to the box!

I used some K&Co. and Pink Paislee papers to cover the box. The butterflies were stamped with an Inque Boutique stamp in several different matching colors. I adhered them to the box by only gluing the center body and then pinching the wings forward for the 3-D effect. And, of course, I used some Kaiser Craft pearls on the "heads" of the butterflies.

The flowers are Prima, which I used several different styles, shapes and colors. I sprinkled glitter on them for some bling! And to top it all off, I hot glued a real candle to the top. I hope you like it!!

I have a toot! toot! to share! My Snowflake card is "Pick of the Week" over at Moments to Remember, my favorite site!! If, you aren't already a member, check it out! It is such a fun place to be!
