101 Birthday Ideas for Friends
{Blog Hop Birthday designs by C {dot} love}

Kristen wanted to collect ideas for us grown-up birthday girls because, c'mon those grown-up birthday girls can kind of get a bum deal. So we put together a great collection of simple, inexpensive gift ideas (most with free printables!!) that will brighten up anyone's day (even non-birthday days).

But before we get to all that excitement, let me show you all what I've made for you! Lately I've been having fun making these watercoloring pages (here and here), and I decided to make one for you all that folds into a box!


Boxes that say "treat yo'self" seemed like the way to go. Right? To make your own gift boxes, you will need:



1. Start off by printing the box top and bottom off on watercolor paper (You can get the plain Treat Yo' Self box HERE and the birthday version HERE).


2. Tape the paper down to your table or work surface to keep it from bubbling or warping too much. Paint or color the box top and bottom.



3. When the painting is dry, cut out out the box lid and bottom around the outside edge. Fold the sides up to form the box.

4. Glue the flaps together in the corners. I used this Elmer's Craft Bond Glue Pen that I got at SNAP Conf and it worked great for the little flaps.


I decided to line one of my boxes with some pretty contrasting scrapbook paper. To do that I traced the bottom on the back side of the scrapbook paper and cut it out. 


I cut the corner flaps off of the lining, and glued the bottom to the inside of the bottom of the box. After the outside of the box was glued together, I glued the sides of the lining down.

And that's it! Time to fill that box with a special treat - earrings, nail polish, or a favorite candy. Gift cards fit perfectly in the box too.




Fun, right? Maybe it's just me, but I feel like there is something extra special about a gift that comes in a box. 



Now it's time for loads more awesome gift ideas and printables!
