    So before I share my peek, I want to start off my post today by wishing my first born, Alexa a Happy 12th Birthday today!

    Please read Alexa’s Story <—click it, if you never have before.

     I just updated it too, to reflect where she is in life now.

    It will really make you appreciate the blessings in every day.

    She has had such a year of personal growth and accomplishment! To say I am proud of who she is becoming is an understatement. She really has a mind of her own, and is really expressing herself and personality. I always go through so many emotions on her birthday, as it is one of the most special days of my life. Alexa deserves to be celebrated. She has gone through so much in her short life, and has taught me so much. I am beyond blessed to have been given such a gift in being her mom.

    Since Alexa is now 12 (boy thats tough to type!)  tweens can be a tough age to make gifts for.  I made this gift box for her using a NEW! Pretty Packaging Template called Topped Off, that I think is going to be perfect for her!

    Topped Off $5

    Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

    Completed Project Size:

    2 3/4 Inches Tall

    3 1/2 Inches Wide

    3 1/2 Inches Deep

     This is a very versatile favor box with so many possibilities to “Top It Off “!

    This template has a versatile favor box base, with lid, that you can top off  however you choose! On this sample I used the Star topper.

    Before adding the star layers, I curled some paper ribbon for an added WOW!

    Alexa’s FAVORITE color is the fuchsia pink, so I made her box to suit her personality. She is going for the funky rocker girl thing these days, so I think she will love this.

    I used some older sets: Keep Strong © 11 Images, , Fanciful Flourishes © 21 Images and Lost My Tooth © 17 Images (with the Lost My Tooth © cut file). The paper is the Taylor’s Teeth © Sweetheart’s Paper Bag, recolored to black/gray. It was perfection!

    I love the angled bottom of the box, as it adds a creative flair that a plain squared box bottom just can’t give! Sometimes it’s the SUBTLE details that really make you say WOW!

    This file comes complete with all the elements you need to top it off  in fashion. Just adhere your choice of toppers for a fun versatile favor box!

     Toppers Included:

    Snowman complete with hat and mittens

    4 Layered Pointed Petal Flower

    3 Layered Star

    and a Dual Layered Square (for a Graduation Cap!)

    All this in ONE template purchase! AMAZING!

    (I will share details on the above samples using all the toppers as the week progresses!)

    That isn’t all you can do! Layer whatever other shapes or cut files you have in your collection for a plethora of other endless favor possibilities!

    The layered star is just stunning, and fun for so many occasions!

    You could use this for a birthday celebration for any age-boy or girl, Chistmas time, New Years, New Baby, A Star is Born… get the idea.

    I want to use this for some staff at Make A Wish in Manchester NH, as I have recently signed up as volunteer! It is a foundation that I have long supported before becoming recipientof Make A Wish. I ahve always wanted to give back and this will be a perfect way to start.
