Our niece is going to be 16 (!) at the end of the month! It’s her 2nd Covid birthday and a milestone, so we’re going to do a little extra for her mailed birthday package in addition to her official gift (whatever that’s going to be).
The front panels are hologram, but also the dots are a bit raised. All the embellishments are from stash.
I used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut the letters from a glitter cardstock on the side of the 1.
I also used my Sizzix to cut this ticket to the “best day ever” for the side of the six. I rubbed some ink on there to help it stand out a bit as well as along all the edges of the numbers, because the cardstock in white on the inside and back, so it shows on the cuts and folds.
I sewed little muslin pouches for some steel and copper shot that are glued into the base to keep the letters upright and more stable. The files are from svgcuts.com’s 3D Numbers Party “kit” which included the files for these party hats came from.
