Scrapbooking Garage Sale

If you're in the Colorado Springs area and in the market for some cheap scrapbooking supplies, come to my garage sale Friday and Saturday, May 21-22nd from 8-1pm. 8302 Ravenel Dr.

We're also selling a recliner, sofa, John's kayak (yay!), a ping-pong table, barstools, books, and miscellaneous other stuff.

Texas is not big enough for all this stuff!

Scoreboard Blog Hop - Cake Gift Box

It's Scoreboard Blog Hop day! I have come out of hiding long enough to make a project for the hop and then it's back to the business of moving.

Today's die is the Scoreboard Cake Box. This adorable little box is perfect to hold a small present. Although it was designed to open from the top, with the addition of a hinge and clasp, you can move the opening to the side of the box rather easily.

Cake Gift Box

For my cake, I added strips of pink paper inside the cake and then strips of ribbon to the outside of the cake. The "candle" is a battery-operated tealight candle with a push switch underneath. It can be toggled on and off by pressing on it. The "Happy Birthday" message is stamped and embossed in white powder.

Want to see more ideas for using this die? Keep hopping! You can follow the links below and/or start at Eileen Hull's blog. She is the designer of the die and the queen of the Blog Hop!
