This week is our 2011-2012 Design Team's last week here on the Bella blog. But before saying our final goodbye, we still have a ton of projects from these designers to share with you. We're going to start off the week by sharing a variety of projects featuring the Birthday Boy collection.
Altered Gift Boxes, by Sheri Feypel.
This trio of paper mache boxes look so much better covered with Bella Blvd's Birthday Boy line. I covered each side of all three boxes with paper, stickers and/or designer tape. Each box is a little bit different and on the smallest one I added a "fancy" paper ribbon with a popped up sticker in the middle. I also made my own flag with a sticker and stick pin. Not only would these be super cute to pack a couple of gifts in they also make cute decor to set out for a party.

Altered Round Box, by Sheri Feypel.
Covering paper mache boxes makes any gift even better! This round box was easy to cover and looks super cute decorated with the Birthday Boy line. I will confess that I did have to use some extra adhesive though.

Mini Treat Bags, by Sheri Feypel.
These little treat bags are quick and easy to make. I used a 2.5x4 piece of paper, folded it in half and stapled it to the top of the plastic bag. I added the star shape and cut each of those cute little cupcakes out from the Borders sheet. If you didn't get to see these in the CHA booth, it is because Stephanie probably at all of the candy. She does that. Lol!

“Birthday Cake”, by Sarah Klemish.
Even though these papers are called “Birthday Boy” I had fun scrapping pictures of my great niece Lia enjoying her first birthday cake! I started with the green graph background, adding paint splatters as an embellishment. I then cut several strips of patterned paper and added them horizontally on the page. I added my title in the center of the layout. I used photo corners as an “arrow” accent and added journaling strips. Finally I added my pictures, photo corner and patterned paper across the top of the layout.

"Happy Birthday To You" card, by Laura Vegas.
This little chipboard frog was too cute NOT to use on a fun birthday card. What little boy wouldn't like to receive this card on his special day? I adhered him using pop dots for some extra dimension. Then I cut one of the quote stickers from the Alpha+Bits sticker sheet into smaller pieces so that it would fit on the speech bubble sticker.

“Happy Birthday” card, by Sheri Feypel.
I created a large flag for the front of this card starting with a lollipop stick (unused) as the "flag pole." I made the flag with strips of paper, cut to look like small flags. I layered them onto the "flag pole" and brought them all together with some twine and a yellow star button. I also cut some scraps of paper to give the effect of confetti around the flag.
