happy friday :) this week over at PCC mary has chosen our theme to be a childs birthday using a digi, handstamped or cricut image of a zoo animal. be sure to check out the fun creations made by the rest of the DT.
what i did was make a crayon box image holder. one of those little things you can keep in your purse for those times when your little one needs some entertainment.
i used my cricut and tagsbagsboxesandmore cartridge and made 2 crayon boxes ( cut one at 5 1/2 or 5 3/4 inches so they fit a new crayon) the second box i cut a tad smaller and adhered the 2 backs together with a strong double sided tape. i also used plantin school book cartridge for the words on the boxes. i used stamped images from autumn leaves mindys zoo and tucked them inside the smaller box. the sentiments on the card which is about 3X2~1/2 are  from a  new birthday stamp set from creative clear stamps <~~~ click there to purchase. i added buttons for fun. a really easy little project :) thanks for checking this out  have a super fun weekend!

heres the images inside the box they fit neatly inside so be sure to measure your paper before you stamp just to make sure the stamped image isnt too big.
this is the larger box that holds the crayons. you could use 2 of the same size box of course.
heres a side view of them adhered
i just tucked the back part of the card into the front of the box
