Wild Flower Kids+Perfect Presentation= really cute stuff

I have less than 2 hours before I have to leave to take my girls to a birthday party and I literally just finished the gift boxes.  It’s a pool party and as soon as I finish this post I will dig furiously for their bathing suits. Nothing like the last minute!

I know I’m on the Wild Flower Kids DT and I know my templates are sold in the store…but seriously, WFK images are my go-to images when I need to make something for a kid (or a grown up!).  And since I have 2 elementary school age kids that get invited to birthday parties it’s nice to be able to print out an image and run with it. I do have both rubber stamp sets from WFK and those are nice if I want to stamp on something like cork.

Boy TagI made this very simple Favor Box and stamped Skater Sage on to a die cut piece of cork that I adhered to a white piece of cardstock (so we could write on the back).  

Next up is Flower Fairy Daisy paired up with the Hey Cupcake template to make this cheery gift for the birthday girl.  I left her wings bare so I could add some glue and glitter in the hopes that nobody would notice that I can’t color hair worth a darn.  It’s ok. I’ve come to terms with it.  I die cut a butterfly and used it for a tag.Maya's Box front  Maya's box side viewMaya's box top view

The party this afternoon is for a set of twins and I decided to give them both the same gift of a box of assorted candy with money on top.  My kids love to get money and since I spent an hour wandering the toy and craft aisles at Target this morning … money it is! I have girls and cannot shop for a boy!  I just don’t know what boys like.

Thanks for stopping by!  I need to go shower so I don’t embarrass my kids at the party.  Have a wonderful weekend!


Supplies : from PTI—Beautiful Blooms pattern paper, butterfly dreams stamp set, butterfly die, simply chartreuse cardstock and button, hawaiian shores cardstock, kraft cardstock, rustick white cardstock.  Cork from Karen Foster Designs. twine from May Arts, ribbon from AC Moore.



  1. Ah!!! These are super cute! I love the cork on the little boy box... that's a great idea and your girl box is amazing! Both together are just STUNNING!! The recipients of these are very lucky. :D

  2. Both boxes are great! I just love all the PP on the second and the images on both are adorable of course. No complaining about your coloring - it is perfect!

  3. I think these are PERFECT! Such lovely bright colors in the second.

  4. These are great! So creative Annie.

  5. Pool party? Good grief it's so chilly here, there's no way.
    These are both awesome, and I thin money and candy are the perfect gift!

  6. Great job on all of them. Stamping on the cork is very cool. Love the boxes you made for the girls. Super cute!

  7. These are both adorable, and I'm sure they were a huge hit at the party!!! I need to do that more often, and just give money. My daughter loves to receive money too so she can buy her Webkinz and Club Penguin stuff:) Coloring hair is definitely the hardest! I still break out in a nervous sweat when I get to that part LOL!

  8. Hi annie. :P awwww...these are cute! I hope all is well. Have a great week!

  9. Hi Annie, how are you???? Your boxes are just the cutest! Love the cork idea, and your bow is gorgeous!

  10. Oh these are too cute girl!! I love the boxes!!! I really need to make more gift boxes!! Whoever gets these are going to love them!! I am going to have to check out all your new templates!!

  11. I love the tags on both of these. The cork is a fun idea, and I've never thought of a butterfly for my tags. I will definitely file that idea away! I'm sure the money was a huge hit, I know it always is with my kiddos!

  12. I love it - I'm comment number 13 on all these!!
    Cuteness! The stamping on the cork is fab and perfect for a boy. The only person that cares about your inability to color hair is yourself...I'm coming to terms with it myself too! The gift is perfect with candy, money and glitter!!


Thank you for taking the time to comment!
