Birthday Wishes~

For you little monkey.

I think I might have mentioned the numerous birthdays we have in September.

But, that just means we are guaranteed cake and ice cream each week. Yippee!

This just happens to be Silhouette’s birthday as well, and they’re celebrating by having all birthday related images on sale.

And of course, I picked up one or two.

I’m using them to enter their weekly challenge.

This week it’s to use any of the Celebration images.

I decided to try one of the sketch images and sketchpens to make my own patterned paper.

I then attempted to cut the Lori Whitlock 3D String Tie box; however, it would have been smarter and actually worked if I remembered to switch the blade and pen. Oops!

The next time I try this I plan to first center both my printed images and my cut image on the paper just to make sure the print is spaced a bit better when cut.

I hope that makes sense.

My assembled box~

Since the birthday boy is such a little monkey I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to add one to his box.

I think these balloon floating animals are just adorable and I might have actually bought them all.

I have to admit there were a few other little Whoopsies I had with this project, but I love the end result and plan to try this again.

Soon.
