Now that my sister's family lives in Idaho, we weren't able to celebrate Timothy's birthday with him (first time ever- sniff). I needed a gift that would be easy to send since I wouldn't be seeing him in person to deliver it. I decided to make him a portable party! The Craft Block is stuffed with everything you need to have a great birthday party - balloons, candles, noisemakers, candy, ribbon, bows, favors, confetti, and money. This would be a great gift for anyone you can't see in person on their special day: college students, members of the military, long-distance family, or pretty much anyone else! Read on to make your own.
Party in a Block
- Craft Block (affiliate links throughout the post)
- miscellaneous party favors
- candies that won't melt or make a mess in transit
- birthday confetti
- anything else you can fit in there that looks festive
Start by gathering up your supplies.
Drop the items into the Craft Block, one at a time. Use the chopsticks to adjust their positioning. I wanted the swirly top to face outward, so I lowered it in with chopsticks and put it just where I wanted.
Continue to fill the craft block until there is no more room. Give it a shake to help everything settle, then rotate it to fill in gaps. You want it full so that things don't shift or break in the mail.
