DIY HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN A BOX!
This is such a fun craft and a special way to show someone you care. Have you ever had a friend move away, or a family member be traveling during their birthday? Maybe you’re just looking for a unique way to show someone you are thinking of theme despite not being able to be there on their special day. Sugar Confetti is taking the time to show us how to make your very own DIY Birthday in a Box! With decorations, presents, and fun all in one spot, this will brighten up anyone’s day!
Using washi tape, add vertical stripes to the box. We love washi tape because you can remove it, so if your lines are not straight on the first try you can fix it. Glue the confetti to the lid of the box in a random pattern. Fill your box with special goodies for your special someone. Once filled with goodies, tie it up with ribbon, and add some fun tissue balls.
How to make the Straws and Cupcake Topper. We used washi tape for the fun little flags on our straws and cupcake toppers. We choose our “HELLO” washi tape and our pretty green washi tape. Cut a 3” piece of washi tape, lay it on a flat surface and place the straw down on it. Fold over the tape, lining up the two sides before pressing down. Cut about half an inch down the middle and then cut diagonally from each corner to the end of your middle cut. For the cupcake toppers, we used the same method using wooden skewers, then dipped the ends in glitter and gave them a coat of Modge Podge to keep the glitter from getting on your food. We tied the straws and cupcake topper with pretty twine.
