It is Birthday Party Season!

 

OK. So there is really no Birthday Party Season, most people can’t really plan on when a birthday is.  But it seems like we had a lot of birthday parties to attend in the months of March & April.

For one such birthday I was unsure if we were going to be able to attend.  Kids were sick and so I put off getting a gift, then I decided to stop on the way to the party.

Don’t judge me, you all have done that too.

But, as the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men….

The day got away from me and I wouldn’t have time to run in and find a present.  Alone with the kids in tow.  But I could stop and grab a gift card.

You know, there needs to be more dive thru services for things like this.  A gift card ATM.  Go ahead, run with my idea.  Just include me in the royalties.

I also knew I wasn’t going to be able to stand around the card isle finding the perfect gift card holder.  But as the baby was sleeping, I did have time to make a little box with a tag.

I made a box template and tags in Silhouette Studio and filled them with some digital paper in birthday pattern.

I used the sketch pen feature to address the tag.

It is a little deeper than a gift card, but I filled the space with tissue paper.  I wanted something a little more substantial than an envelope.

The boys and I ran into the store, bought a gift card conveniently located next to the check out counter, and made it to the party on time.
