Birthday Party Decor & Gifts

Tutorial by Maria Smeshkova


   “Hello everyone! May is my favorite time because my beloved daughter was born this month. And today I want to show you how I created the decor for her birthday party. I made little gift boxes for guests, cupcake toppers and a banner. All of them are multi-colored but perfectly combined because I used bright and juicy Grow with Love collection.

   I decorated the top of the boxes with die-cuts in the shape of butterfly wings and added some crystals. I used stamps and embossing for the toppers, and placed photos of my daughter on the banner.

    I think the decoration turned out very cute and girly.


    TIP: If the letters on the banner are placed on top of the flags, they will be better visible.” ~Maria
