{tipster tuesday} charlie brown inspired birthday-in-a-box

Grab your notebook and a pencil ‘cuz it’s…

My sister-in-law and her husband always sneak off to a secluded beach when their birthdays roll around in August. Each year I send them off with a birthday-in-a-box. It’s a fun way to be part of their celebrations, even if we are hundreds of miles away. They are both huge fans of Charlie Brown, so I used the Piggy Bank Parties’ Charlie Brown Inspired Collection this year, though a birthday-in-a-box could be done in any theme!

Total spent on the birthday box $6! Most items can be found at any store…candles, balloons, cupcake marshmallows, glow wands and paper plates. I raided my craft supplies for the bitty bags, divine twine and paper straws.

I wanted to do something extra special this year, so I painted them Linus and Charlie Brown peg dolls and added my favorite quotes from each character.

Happy Birthday Ann and Tim, wishing you a year full of happiness and health!

The entire Charlie Brown Inspired Collection is available over at the Piggy Bank Parties’ market and the Hand Painted Peg Dolls are available on my blog, Crossing the Bugger-Dixon Line!
