The Birthday Project - Gussie Up Your Gifts

Despite different backgrounds, beliefs, and traditions, one thing we share that unites us and is worth celebrating is the birthday of friends and family. Recognizing the special day of someone you love with a handcrafted card straight from the heart is always a good idea and if stocking your stash with unique birthday designs is on the agenda, have we got the perfect challenge for you! 

Our monthly Birthday Project challenge features ideas for getting creative with your birthday card making. Our team is excited to share their ideas, and we’re ALL excited to see how the challenges inspire you!

Cards are critical components of a birthday celebration but don’t forget all the fun ways you can use your birthday-themed stash of stamps and Die-namics to accent gift tags and wraps as well. Create your own patterned paper, add some personality to your gift bags and tags, and even spruce up your envelopes to tie your look together!

MFT products are encouraged, but not required - just make sure to include an accented birthday gift element (gift tags, gift bags, envelopes, etc...) to be eligible! You can enter your cards for this week's challenge in the Inlinkz Link Up at the bottom of this post.

Rachel created a set of interactive tags that can adorn birthday gifts and offer a fun shaker surprise. We love how she incorporated the Bitty Bear images along with a birthday sentiment directly on the tags.

Inge went dimensional with her project and created a gift box featuring floral stamping and a gorgeous mix of layered die cuts and patterned paper on top. The pop of aqua with the black and white elements adds nice contrast and really makes the sentiment strip stand out.
