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 say...it'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.
-Confetti Cupcake Pop Tarts
-Air Heads Bites
-Bubblegum lip gloss
-heart shaped post-its
-hot pink loofah
-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!
Back of tag read:
