diy happy birthday light box

you know when your brain needs a break 
when you reach into it and 
nothing is in there.

such was the case with me for a bit,
when i was trying too hard to come up 
with something to blog about 
but my brain said 
"noooooo! i need a rest!"

of course it doesn't help when you overuse it
 like i did over the holidays with prep 
and all,
 not to mention family matters.

but now i am back and i am moving on to...

well, actually my son's to be exact, 
which is coming next month.

so i saw some goodies at the store and 
it lit my brain afire again!

and i made a happy birthday light box :)
you just need 3 supplies:
they look like fruit gummies to me :)

so i had to have them along with this:
first step:
and finally get some kinda glue.
add some batteries to the pack and:
ok let's see how it looks when you turn it on:
that's purrrtee.
how about at night?
well if that's not a party in a box i don't know what is.

i do think it needs some more bling though
(which is completely optional of course).

and there you have your happy birthday light box :)
now the next fun part is filling it up,
which you have endless possibilities for your birthday sweetie.
ok so maybe the ice cream would melt or
the coconut drink would spill,
but heck,
there are still lots of choices to suit
 that special birthday person ;)


  1. Your creative brain is back in business! What a fun gift box to fill with awesome surprises! My birthday is a mere 6.5 months away. I'll take mine filled with Benjamin Franklins. ;o)
