Wishing you Rainbows and Sunshine!

 It's summer vacation and I am so excited! I have been counting down for a while now and it's finally here! I am hoping to get even more crafting done now that I will have some helpers to watch the little ones. I have a little birthday ensemble to share with you today. I really love these hot air balloons. I used some scraps that I had left over from some cards I made last spring. I am so proud of myself for using so much of my old/hoarded paper!





 I didn't take a picture with the lid off, but all of the focal images are attached to the lid. The ribbon is threaded through the inside so that the lid can be easily taken off without having to undo anything.  The bottom sentiment is attached to the base of the box.





I made a tiny 3 by 3 card that I could slip inside the box with the gift. Sometimes I like having just one complete package to give rather than loose odds and ends. Not much more to say! Thanks for fluttering by and enjoy your summer!

P.S. I am needing to make a new banner for my mantel so I will post that when I get it done! I found the perfect paper...I hope!

I love this set. If you ever have extra time (HA!) to take more photos, I'd love to see step by step how you do the boxes, thread the ribbon etc!! They are so fabulous!
