This past week was my dear sister's birthday. Hooray! Since this dear sister lives in a different state, I decided to pack up her party and ship it to her.

I purposely kept each item minimal and generally unembellished for easy shipping and assembly on the other side. You know me, I like a good user experience. No one wants a party shipped to them that takes longer then 5 minute to set up, let's be real.

I've broken the box items out into individual how-to's (links will be below.) But I also wanted to highlight the final details of how it was put together.


1) Gather your items

This box included:

I also included a fun little pack of bookmarks -  you can add your own special extras too!


2) Find a box, line it with tissue paperI purposely went indie and used a sardine box to be unassuming. 

3) Pack your items, and sprinkle some confetti before sealing. I taped some 'confetti' to the outside, using paper from the hole punch I accumulated from the other projects. I put some confetti inside the box as well. #Confettiismyfriend


And there you have it! Birthday party in a box.
