I have purchased a bridal shower in a box and admit, it was very handy. I used 60% of the items.
So, when designing this tiny treasure, I made sure to include all the things! An easy to make, colorful Happy Birthday banner and fun stickers to apply to the different elements inside the box. You will make your own filler paper using cardstock or tissue paper. And for the cake topper, candles and sprinkles, you choose what the recipient likes best!
Let’s Get Started on our Tiny Birthday Box
You will need a few supplies, so round up the following:
- colored ink cartridge
- my pdf template for the banner and the stickers (keep scrolling to download button!)
- colored card stock if you are making crinkled box filler
- tissue paper if you are not making your own box filler
- sticker paper or circle punch cutter
- cardboard box (You can find foil wrapped gift boxes at some stores!)
- wrapping paper if you do not find a pre-wrapped box
- small plastic zippered bags for holding sprinkles, candles, etc.
- Sprinkles and a Happy Birthday cake topper of your choice
- candles and a lighter
- cord or satin ribbon or cute string for banner
- double-sided tape or hot glue gun and glue stick to set banner pieces
- balloons, candy or trinkets the celebrant loves
Here are the Instructions for the banner
- Download and print the banner file and carefully trim each letter into a perfect rectangle. I mean, it doesn’t have to be perfect, but the more careful you are, the more uniform the banner will be!
- Fold each letter in half and place the cord or string on the crease. Don’t glue the letters in place until you’ve spaced them like you want. To allow the letters to slide along the string, glue 1 cm below the cord to the bottom and hold for 1 minute each. The letter should slide freely this way. Look at the very last picture to see a completed banner.
- Flip banner letters over to cut out the triangle at the bottom to give your banner a festive edge.
- Almost finished!
- Attach mini clothes pins to each end of the banner to make hanging it a snap!
- Fold the banner like an accordion to carefully pack in in the box.
- Make the fun accordion folded filler paper, or buy it pre-made. Pack up the sprinkles, cake topper, candles and whatever else you are going to include.
Instructions for the Stickers
- Download the sticker file and print on sticker paper or use a circle punch to cut out stickers.
- Apply stickers to plastic bags as shown.
- Boom! Birthday Party in a Tiny Box!!!
