May 2015 {Quirky Happy Birthday} "I Love You" Box

On the 30th of April it was our Elephantshoe blogs official 5 year Birthday. Wow, I started writing here on our the Ellieshoe blog all the way back in 2010, it was a leap of faith and a chance for me to do what was in my heart, to put action to my thoughts and dreams. {If you'd like you can read my very first and short post here under LIVE WHAT YOU LOVE .} My my what a wonderful journey it has been, it wouldn't have been as wonderful or possible without all the lovely & amazing people that follow our posts, download our free printables and order our Elephantshoe goods from our online shoppe. THANK YOU so much!!

To celebrate our Birthday we themed our May "I Love You" box as our Quirky Happy Birthday Box. There were some pretty awesome goods inside to help all of our May subscribers make their own cards, tags and paper bags & to encourage them to get creative and wrap up the Birthday gifts they give in lovely Elephantshoe inspired parcels.

Let's see all the Birthday wrapping goodies that went inside each Love Box.

Elephantshoe I Love You Box

A Birthday Box surprise for a one of our subscribers celebrating her Birthday. We love creating custom tags with special messages from our online shoppers.

Our favourite and most versatile product in this months box was our "Happy Birthday to you" maple wooden stamp. This little winner can be used to stamp tags, cards, envelopes, stickers and wrapping paper to get your HAPPY message across. Presented in a small kraft box that our subscribers could use to package up a small gift for a friend, family member or colleague.

Happy Birthday Stamp Elephantshoe

A handy set of 5 quirky 'ice lolly, cupcake, yay, and make a wish' flag tags were included in each box. These came with twine attached so that they can quickly be attached to a gift be it a wrapped pressie, bottle of wine or bunch of pretty flowers.

Choose a simple wrapping paper (i'm sure you've noticed that we have a love for brown kraft), stamp with your new maple wooden stamp and tie with one of the twine colours included on our Elephantshoe sorbet twine card set. Ta-da and you are sorted with your gift wrapping. A cute solution for presenting your Birthday gifts in a cheerful way.
