DAWN’S BIRTHDAY IN A BOX

Well I said this was DAWN’S AND the pattern info is all her’s and have you guys noticed that she is putting the measurements on the first page rather than having you have to copy them while you watching the VIDEO…I gave her a big shout out BRAVO for doing that as I think it makes it much easier.. then I noticed that she was giving the cutting measurements but not the SCORING… well half at least… then guess you will have to write the score numbers on that sheet that you print of the cover page….again then I print just that first page unless measurements are also on page two… just so I have it and them I make at least a sample for in the protector sheet with that page…I KNOW I have told you about that over and over but hope springs eternal that they may be a newbie at this blog who needs this info…so bare with me.

DAWN’S BIRTHDAY IN A BOX

I have to tell you that I was so excited about this as my BFF in florida has a B day coming up and I am never there for the actual date so I think this is just the best and cutest idea….I can tell her with a card that I am celebrating with her even though I am not there… AND..HUGE HINT….in case you don’t know about it you can pick up the small priority mail boxes at any PO ( they are free) and this little box will fit just fine in one then here is the HUGE PART you can go on line and to UPSP CREATE MAIL LABELS and print out your own mailing label …then you can paste it on the box and you can either give it to your mail man or worst case take it to a PO and drop it on there ready to go desk…NO WAITING FOR PEOPLE TO MAIL OR BUY STAMPS….yep its great there are several sizes but the small works great for this and it only costs $5.25…now who would you not spend 5 bucks on… if your mail comes to regular box you can just put it your mailbox and put the flag up… I might be able to do that but our mail boxes are some of this locking ones in stacks and we have new mail person and she seems to be having enough trouble as it is…she sent back to AMAZON things that were in fact addressed correctly…SO I just drop it by local PO…

Now while I am sending you her info…I do have a few changes that I am going to make… I am putting a candle in the box but instead of mailing matches ( don’t think you are supposed to and my luck they would start a fire somewhere in route…lol) I am going to make one of those MATCH BOOK explosion cards…(its a mini the same size as the match book or just slightly larger… directions down below…instead of real matches…and the words on the front are going to say YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE…don’t have stamp so will just either write them or you could type them and then use punch to punch it out…also instead of ribbon I am going to use the cord stuff… I am hitting party store for a bag of balloons …

Also AMAZON has boxes of those little candles very cheap… and I just used one of them last night since our huge windstorm ..no rain just hurricane winds in some places took down tons of trees and debris..and out power …11 am yesterday till 5:25 this am… I have lived here for 20 years and that is the longest my power has ever been out…and our power lines in this neighborhood are all underground so it took out sources somewhere else…anyway I put one in our bath last night so if one of us got up in the night ( with no power we went to bed at 8…lol) we could find our way to the bathroom…works great I use them for travel all the time… as its just enough light to see where you are going and not bump into things…lol..anyway boxes of these little lights cheap at amazon…or lots of other stores too…you could even decorate a real candle fat candle, one of those little ones that come in the plastic cup or tin cup…. I may try that as well…

Ok that’s the big differences…I can’t show you any of mine cause I forgot to take photo and mailed them already…lol.. in any case I ended up using the match book but I used a HAPPY BIRTHDAY or BEST WISHES…since I didn’t have the lite em up… I used real matches cause I did put the candles in there and because i even found candles that were numbers at the DOLLAR TREE STORE… too cute if you know their actual age and if not they also had a cute HAPPY BIRTHDAY candle that would fit in our box…. LOVE IT…

So give it a go… and FYI…it will fit plus space into one of the small priority mail boxes which you can print label for on line for only $5.05. then BEST PART no standing in line a PO or any mailing place you can just drop it on the prepaid desk …. is that great or what and then look at all those folks in line waiting to get the postage on their pkgs…. they hate us…
