Onto my creation... I made this sweet little treat/gift box for my Sister, who will be celebrating her 30th birthday on Sunday :) Love you to pieces sister!!!

Fancy Pillow Box 2 Cutting FilesBirthday Critters Cutting Files

I just LOVE this pillow box, don't you !? I think the see through little parts of the box was a genius move by Lisa, when she created this file!
I cut the box out using paper from the "Party Day" 12x12 paper stack by Crate Paper.
My sweet little girly mouse, was cut out using the print and cut feature of my silhouette, I then added some pearls to the cupcake along with some yellow Stickles for the base of cupcake and flame.
Of course no project is EVER complete with out some twine, I used one of my favorites, "Strawberry Cupcake" by Timeless Twine.
