Birthdays are a big deal in our family and we’re gearing up to celebrate Bob the Builder’s next month. Most of you tell me that masculine cards are the most challenging for you to create, and I’d have to agree. I like girly things with bling so creating something that’s geared towards the guys always stretches my creativity. Today’s video project is a box in a card. Yes, you read right. A box IN a card – and it’s perfect for the guys, too! I’m using the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and coordinating Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper to create this unique card and gift all-in-one!

I’ve included pictures following the video in this post along with cutting dimensions and a list of supplies.
