I've had a play with the new ~{3D Birthday Box}~ by ~{Tando-Creative}~  and it's fab to work with. It connects up brilliantly to make a sturdy box perfect to store your birthday cards for loved ones. 

I covered mine with patterned papers and Bazzill card and inked the edges. The month's letters have been painted in black acrylic paint and covered with Glossy Accents. These letters are fused together to make it easier. The sheets for the months are provided and you have the option of downloading more if you want to. There is also a selection of sheets for addresses so everything is there for you to be organised with!

The 'BIRTHDAY' letters are separate so that you can arrange them how you want, but I went for the straight option this time! I've painted them and doodled around the edges before again using Glossy Accents.

You don't have to use it as a box for cards as it makes a lovely storage box. The only thing you'd need to be careful of is the strength of the glue you use on the bottom! Or you can do like I did and hold it underneath if you move it!

So sorry I haven't visited for ages - somehow life got in the way. There's certainly so many fab projects here to catch up on - such an inspiration. I love this creation and also particularly love your Tando spring project x
