Kinderstampo 34 Birthday Candles Blog Hop & BLOG CANDY

Hi everyone and welcome to KinderStampO's 34 Birthday Candles and Counting Blog Hop!!! 


HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESS!!!!!!!!


This is a hugely awesome hop as there are over 40 designers sharing at least 40 fun birthday inspired projects!   If you've arrived from Momo then you are in the right place. If you are just here visiting and would like to start from the top click here.
The next stop is Marilyn Nimmo.



My birthday project is really a pre-birthday project :)  My in-laws are hard to buy for as they have EVERYTHING!  SO...I made them a mailbox for their birthday gift requests.  The little slot can take papers 3" wide :)  I used my cricut to cut the pattern.  It is from www.svgcuts.com and it was used for a valentine's mailbox, but I can see uses for this adorable pattern all year round :)  E-mail me if y'all have any questions about this project :)


Scroll to the bottom for BLOG CANDY details!!! (I ADDED ANOTHER SURPRISE GIVEAWAY AS I REACHED 100 FOLLOWERS!!!!  READ BELOW FOR DETAILS!!!!!!!)





DP, coordinating CS, various punches for flowers, lace, pearl bling
Mailbox dimensions: 5" wide, 6.5" tall, 4" deep


ALSO, there is some **BLOG CANDY!** All you need to do is become a follower of my blog AND leave a comment here. (If you are already a follower, please mention that when leaving a comment, thank you.)  A winner will be announced on Monday January 24.  :) (There is also a special handmade jewelry SURPRISE included in the blog candy!!)






***UPDATE*** In addition to the blog candy above, along with a jewelry surprise, I will be giving away another bunch of items (SURPRISE!!!) as I reached 100 followers today. THANK YOU for your blog love and comments and for following my humble blog...  Winners for both giveaways will be announced on Monday Jan 24th!!!!!


The next stop is Marilyn Nimmo.
Have FUNNN!!!!


much love,

What a fun project. I think this would be fun to have for each kid and you could put little notes in them telling them how proud you are of them or that you love them or invite them to a special day just for them! Totally stealing this idea!
Super cute!
ps...now I'm following you! :D
