A Birthday Present??

Hello! I'm pretty excited about this project.....I think it's going to be part of my mother's Birthday Present!! It's sneaking up fast - Monday is only 3 days away!!
Anyway, this project is for Phindy's Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is to make a 3D Project, it can be a card with 3D elements or a whole project. I decided to use a template that I got from the Wild Flower Patch - Uptown Takeout. I haven't used it before so I was excited about that. I'm also excited that, with the exception of 1 piece of cardstock, I used all scraps - again! If you saw my scrap bin, you wouldn't believe I've been using it!!
So, back to the project. I thought this would be perfect for my mother who likes to "tinker in her yard". It would be neat to put seed packets and roll up a pair of garden gloves or one of those mini flower kits, but I'll probably end up filling it with candy! While I was making this, I was thinking of other Phindy Images that you could use to make different "birthday boxes": "Sudsy Suzy" would be great with bath beads in the box, "Jacks" would be perfect with Jacks in it, "Hopscotch" would work perfectly with some sidewalk chalk.....okay, you get the idea, there are lots of options!
Well, I guess I've chatted enough about this project, can you tell I liked it? Hope you do too!
