Bella Birthday Blog Skip, Hop, and Dance!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EM!

In honor of Em's birthday, we are having an awesome Bella Birthday Blog Skip, Hop, and Dance! If you've just happened upon my blog, click here to start from the beginning.

During our Ketto Blog Hop, some ladies mentioned that they'd like to see a simple, fast, and inexpensive project. So I've got one for you! I found a large Nicole Crafts Takeout Box at AC Moore for 99 cents! They stock several colors. Michael's and Hobby Lobby have them, too. They are available on the internet as well.
I wrapped black grosgrain ribbon around the edges. I used Stamping Bella's Cuppacakeabella and cut her out with a "silhouette" shape. I added some Prima flowers and Bella's Dots. I made a thick layer of frosting using Cotton Candy Stickles. Then I wrote a message with a Sharpie. This literally took 15 minutes! It's definitely simple, fast, and inexpensive! Of course, you can add as much flair as you'd like: some DP, more embellishments, etc. It's a great project for any level stamper. The best part is that you can fill it with fun surprises!

Now for the REALLY exciting news: there is a prize hidden somewhere along this Blog Hop! One pre-selected and secret blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $40 gift voucher to Stamping Bella! Be sure to leave a comment on every blog so that you have a chance to win!

Now skip, hop, or dance (or all three!) over to Michelle's blog. Enjoy!
