birthday stars and balloons in a box

Yes, another box card ... they are addictive.

Like the previous one, the top flaps are 3" square, the base panels 3" wide x 4" tall.

Some of the stars and balloons are attached to the card base and bridges, others are attached to lengths of acetate, so they wobble around and look like they are floating. 

The card folds flat for mailing.

March  Challenge - Birthdays
My birthday card uses lots and lots of Paper Smooches stars and balloons.


  1. I came to comment on the blue one---I love it--and found the pretty pink one, too! You did a great job. Maybe, you convince me to give it another try. Won't be crafting for awhile. Back surgery on the horizon. Miss me! Hugz!

    1. Thank You Suzi :)
      Hope your surgery goes well and that you have a speedy recovery!!!
      YES - I can definitely help you to make one, I promise it will be easier than you thought AND that you will become addicted like me!!! Do you have a score board? If so, I can put together a tutorial to make it easier for you to make one ... I have watched & read bundles of tutorials and through trial (and error), think that I have it worked out to make it as fast and easy as it could possibly be.

  2. This is awesome! I need to learn to make these!!

    1. Thank You Donna :)
      It would be a pleasure to help you make one ... they are much easier than they look. To me, making the base is the easy part, filling the inside is more of a challenge, as I like to cover the bridges and trying to use acetate more, so that the accents float and move.

  3. Catching up on my visits! Love the card. I pinned. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/415386765612275219/
