Cooper's 1st Birthday


Hi everyone.  Yesterday was Cooper's birthday party and I made him my first pop-up box card.  I had so much fun making this! :)

I bought the pattern from Silhouette America and cut it with my Cameo.  I used a checkerboard stencil to make the sides and back of the card (stencil was cut with my Cameo too!).  I just love the racing car design.  There are several videos on youtube on how to make these box cards without a cutting machine.  I could see myself making many of these with different themes. :)

Nikki and Evan went to a lot of work making decorations for the party ... the theme was "Dumbo and Under the Big Top".  Everything they made was so perfect ... from the pennants that welcomed you at the door, to the large marquee with Cooper's name in lights, to the boxes of popcorn and yummy "Big Top" fondant covered cake ... it was so fun! :)







I've included a few pictures below of the birthday boy ... having a sweet treat for the very first time.  He didn't like the icing, but LOVED the cake :)

  1. Cutie pie! Wow--a year without sweets. A good thing for sure, but so hard! Guess not so much if you never knew about them though. Looks like it was a fun party.

  11. It looks as though Cooper had a great time. What a fab cake and I love his name in lights!
    Aren't they wonderful at this age, they grow up so fast!
    The box card you made was a great idea, perhaps next year you could include Mini Coopers! ( a car in the UK if you are not familiar)
    Warm Christmas wishes. x
