The Birthday Project Challenge - May We Present

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!

We know it’s the thought that counts but c’mon, can we all agree that a thoughtful gift is really the icing on the birthday cake? With a wide variety of gift stamps and dies, you ought to have no trouble completing this month’s challenge — join our team in crafting a birthday card featuring one or more presents.

MFT products are encouraged, but not required - just make sure to add a present to your birthday project to be eligible! You can enter your cards for this week's challenge in the Inlinkz Link Up at the bottom of this post.

At first glance it might appear as though Inge forgot to include a present on her design, but if you look a little closer, you'll see the sweet surprise the hippo has hiding behind his back.

A present doesn't have to come in a box tied with ribbon - gift bags are a great choice if you're short on time or just want to get creative with your gift-giving.
