My project today is the It’s Your Birthday Box and it’s the same box as the Ears to You Easter Box and the Easter Blessing Box .. only difference is …. it’s an inch taller.

To make this size … You’ll need a piece of Marina Mist card stock that measures 10-1/4 x 4-1/4 ….  the smaller version you need 10-1/4 x 3-1/4.

I stamped the whale from the Oh, Whale stamp set with Marina Mist ink .. as well as the greeting from the Henry Says Stamp Set.  I cut the whale out with the Happy Whale Clearlit and cut the greeting out with the 1-3/8 Circle Punch.

The Designer Series Paper is Sunshine & Sprinkles from the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog and it measures 3-3/8 x 3.

The handle measures 5/8 x 9 and I attached it to the box using Silver Brads from the Metallic Brads Collection.

I’ve included a video to how to make  It’s your Birthday Box ….
