A Happy Birthday Box!

How many of you received this box in the mail?  It was from Kimberly-Clark and contained new Kotex samples!  As if free girly stuff wasn't good enough...the packaging was to good to toss!  Seriously, just look at it!  It scream "alter me!" right!?  :)

Well, it just so happens that my niece, Rylee, is turning SEVEN today and the one thing she told me she wanted for her birthday was 'money' and it just sort of came together as this...
 


The money is suppose to be 7 birthday candles (with some hidden cash in a couple of the rolls!)!  I attached the rolled up cash with removable Glue Dots and I am hoping they hold up for their 1,000 mile journey to get to my niece!

I used Momenta's Kaliedoscope collection and embellishments to cover and decorate the box...I just love the bold, bright colors!  They are just so cheerful! 

I love how this turned out...I only wish I could be there when she opens it but I know she will love getting a surprise in the mail!
