Rockstar Birthday Box



The daughter of a friend of ours had a birthday recently. She's into the rockstar items that are popular right now. I used a hard box that my husband got when he bought his latest wallet. I covered it with paper and inserted some tissue paper and put inside the rockstar earrings. Sorry to keep it so short!

Oh I just love it when crafters re-purpose something! How awesome is this? Rockstar material indeed, I love the design and paper used on it. She'll rock on with it! ;)

This box is great. Definitely better than your traditional wrapping. I've been saving some boxes from jewelry and small electronics, so I'll have to give it a go too. I'm sure she'll love it!

Hi Felicia,
It doesn't matter that the post is short, your project was a great idea. Don't you just love when you can re-use something with your paper crafts?
