Birthday Box - Etsy Inspired Challenge #99

Wow...where did the week go?! We have been busy getting the last details and extra cleaning/purging done in preparation for putting our house on the market. We are going to go look at a possible new house tomorrow. It's such a big decision...we want everything to be so perfect but at the same time we realize that we probably can't have it all for the price we want.

I did make time to work on my Etsy Inspired project this week though! I just had to play with the adorable image I received from our sponsor this week, Bugaboo Stamps. And our featured Etsy shop, Becky Kazana, is filled with lots of fun wedding and party decor that is sure to inspire you! I loved her birthday banner and came up with this cute, eco-friendly gift box...perfect for filling with some birthday treats or small gift.



Start saving your berry and tomato containers! They can be reused in so many different ways...use them to store your own crafting goodies or decorate them as I've done here to use for gift giving.

Isn't that turtle image adorable?! And I am loving the blue, green, and purple combination in BoBunny's Peacock Lane collection.

For your chance to win some fabulous digital stamps or beautiful cards be sure to find your own inspiration from Becky Kazana's shop and then link your newly inspired creation up to the Etsy Inspired blog by Friday at noon.

And take some time to visit these lovely ladies too!
Be sure to join us next week for our 100th challenge celebration!!! There will be tons of prizes to be won and of course, lots of great inspiration too! :)

Yours is super cute, and I'm happy to know I'm not the only one hoarding things like this! LOL

What a super cute idea!! I just picked up strawberries and blueberries, so I will be sure to keep them.
Good luck with the house sale and buying. I hope you guys can do it with as little stress as possible.
