Party in a Box Gift

My niece turned 13 last week.  She posted a selfie on Instagram that read, 'Finally a teenager!!!'I knew she wanted money for clothes for her birthday, but there's not much fun in opening a card with money in it, is there?

I guess I should's not a very fun gift to give.  So I made it fun by packaging up a 'party in a box'--with money inside an envelope at the bottom.  

I did it pretty quickly, too.
Birthday craft paper was cut to size and glued onto the flaps of the plain cardboard box.

 A few colorful goodies were placed in the box.
-Confetti Cupcake Pop Tarts
-Air Heads Bites
-Bubblegum lip gloss
-heart shaped post-its
-hot pink loofah
-party blowers
-balloons (I inflated water balloons.)
(All supplies came from Target.)

Polka dot tissue paper was layered throughout.  The inflated balloons were squeezed inside the box, before taping it shut.
I wrapped the box with festive polka dot paper.

Thick, pink ribbon, a washi tape tag and a party blower completed the package..

Now this looks like a party!
