Kristen's Birthday Blog Hop.

Hello, and welcome to Kristen's 2 day blog hop to celebrate her birthday.  If you've made your way here from Alma's Pink Life then you are on the right track.  If not, you'll probably want to go back to the beginning and start at 

I made this card and box for a little girl that lives next door.  I put some hair bows and matching bracelets into the box as part of her gift.  Her party was last Saturday at The Little Gym and my kiddos had a blast. 

And the top of the box.

card- 4" square Kraft card base
My Mind's Eye - Just Dreamy stack- patterned papers
Accent Essentials Cricut cart - scallop square @ 3 3/4", frame using shadow feature @ 3 3/4"
Robotz Cricut cart - '5' cut at 2"
I popped the frame up using dimensionals and then added the ribbons
I put Diamond Stickles around the '5' shadow for shine.

box - cut using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cart and the fit-to-pg feature with 12x24 PC paper = 3 1/2 " square box when assembled
Plantin Schoolbook cart- tag cut at 1 1/2 and 1 3/4"
Accent Essentials cart - 3" scallop squares
Robotz cart - 'V' cut at 2"
Floss for tag DMC #957
I attached ribbon to every other flower petal before assembly.

Okay, on to the blog candy!!  I've got a brand new Robotz cart I'm giving away.  Just leave me a comment to be entered for your chance to win and a way to reach you in case you're the lucky winner.  (sorry forgot to take a pic of the box). I would love it if you also became a follower but it's not required :-)
