Gift for Mikayla's 13th Birthday

Over at Splitcoast they had a tutorial for a Stationary box. I turned mine into a little card fit for Mikalya's birthday gift. She is turning 13 and I thought would be a fun little gift for her to make her own cards for her friends. I stamped out some of the Miss Anya greeting farm girls for her, added some card stock and designer papers. I also flipped the little box sideways so that the ribbons would fit better, little baggies with some primas and brads. Then some pearls and jewels in the other little pocket. She can make 5 cards with the papers included.


As for the box itself. I trimmed off the little side edge for when you close it, I thought that this worked better for this gift. I also turned the one pocket and left it open around it. I have this thing full of all these goodies, that I reinforced the bottom with an extra piece of paper besides the folded in flaps. The prima on the lid is from one of Flourishes prima sets. The stamp on the front and her card is from the Miss Anya collection from the Greeting farm. They are such darling teen images, I love them. Thanks for looking!

Your box and card are just beautiful. Gives me a great idea for my granddaughter, who will be 9 on Sept. 21. She is very creative and loves to stamp with me, when she comes over. What a sweet project. Thanks for sharing it with us.
