Gift Box for a Birthday Girl

Happy Hump Day y'all!  Just wanted to share a gift box that I made for a very special girl.  Her theme was Tinker Bell. 

I had made a similar box like this for my girlfriend back in January for her wedding. 

I changed it up a bit and added a tea light cake as the top layer.  I saw this tea light cake on Teri's blog.  Click {HERE} to see her tutorial!  She is great at doing easy to follow tutorials . . . I obviously horrible at them, thus not doing any.  :(  There is another tutorial on Splitcoaststampers on making a tea light cake.  Click {HERE} for that tutorial.

I created a pocket in the back of the cake to put a gift card in it.  Those purple flowers that you see all over the cake & sprawled about the base of the gift box . . . well, I punched out many, many flowers and layered about 3 of them to make 1 full flower.  I think I made a total of 16, maybe 17. 

Thanks for stoppin in!  :)  Have a great day!
