ABC...Birthday Gift Packaging

Good morning!  It's Anything But a Card Monday at Catch the favorite thing is to recycle a Crystal Light container.  (Good thing I have a stash of them, because they are now oval shaped and the circle Spellbinder's dies no longer work for the lids!)  I went with a birthday theme...with a teen girl, there is always someone having a birthday....  It's good to have a stash if you need something quick!  They are perfect for gift cards, nail polish, lip gloss, etc....girlie stuff!

Eggbert is colored with pencils to coordinate with the patterned paper.  I've added some touches of glitter to the balloons to complement the sparkly shred filling the container.  I've used Spellbinder's dies for the image and the lid.  I've added a band of contrasting patterned paper, curved the image panel around the container, and adhered it with foam tape.  Here's a pic from the side:

Image: Bugaboo "Eggbert Birthday" Digital Image

Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Berry Sorbet, American Crafts Patterned Paper
Embellies: Martha Stewart "Sugar Cube" Glitter, Irridescent Shred
