Happy Girl's Day..."Hina-no-Sekku"

March 3rd is known as girl's day in Japan...but it started in China a long time ago. They display their hina dolls and peach blossoms for everyone to see. I have a beautiful girl and love to celebrate this day...so I thought about making something special for my friends and co-workers.
So I got this template from Corie...Creations by Corie.
I loved the box and wanted to try make some. I used different DP, ribbon from the Papertrey Ink and I cut out the Hello Kitty faces with the new sizzix embosslit with gold paper I bought a while ago from Creations Unlimited.
here I packed them with some goodies..
I used the giga scallop punch and the mega circle punch.
I printed out the sentiment and stamped it with my cherry blossoms.
here I bought the post-its from Fisher with Teri yesterday and I used the CS and DP from Papertrey Ink, stamped the clear japanese dolls, colored with my copics and used some bling for the flowers on the kimono.
here's the goodies I put in for my co-workers...
it's always better with chocolate!

hope everyone had a good day!
I bought my daughter her HSM 3 extended version and Madagascar 2 dvds for her special girl's day. I know the gifts have changed from before, but the meaning doesn't.
have a good week!



Thanks again for my special girls day RAK. I LOVE it!! Jamee still wants to get her HSM 3, maybe this weekend! hahaha

OMGoodness Joy, these are so cute! What a neat idea for Girl's Day. Will have to try this box. Thanks for picking up my stuff from J's, is that all I ordered? Jeez, should have gotten more, lol.


So cute Joy! What's a HSM3? My kids are big so I'm not in tune with the hot kid items. I forgot yesterday was girl's day. Your co-workers were so lucky to get all those goodies.


These are very cute boxes and treats for the girls!! I hope you had a very happy Girl's Day!
Taelyn too!


wow, all your boxes are gorgeous, Joy! How do you find time to make so many of them. I can barely make one box! LOL!

Well, what such nice gifts for Girl's day. The japanese images are adorable and love all the fabulous happy colors that you used!!



Very nice! I bet your friends enjoyed them! And what a wonderful tradition!

Belated Happy Girls day to you and your daughter!

I need to start getting my but in gear...haven't done a card or anything since last week. Got my new office in and I'm slowly weeding through my stuff! I also have visitors so it's been so hard to get some time to make something! Hopefully soon!



Very cute Girls' Day boxes for your friends. Bet they were very happy to receive one. Cute card and great coloring. Where you find the time, I don't know. Your day must have more than 24 hours! Hugs, Cami


Good morning Joy, these are all gorgeous creations,love the Hello Kitty die cut on the front, looks amazing! what a gorgeous blog. Hugs Linda x


These are just ADORABLE! I love that HK die, I didn't see that one yet... they are probably sold out every place I go!
