An Unusual Birthday Greeting Card. Perfect for the "Sporty One!"

A special Birthday on November the 5th!
My dear husband has a birthday on Bonfire Night.
He has a really soft spot for Fireworks and has very happy memories of his childhood parties which always involved a big Bonfire and lots of fireworks!

When we are in Spain for his birthday there are no fireworks and he has given up hoping there may even be the odd Rocket or Catherine wheel!
So this year I decided to redress the balance a bit by making him a special card!
Here is the end result.

I tucked this inside to send lots of love to him on his special day.

A little box in the shape of a cascade firework -- my favourite. 
Pretty colours and no bangs!

In actual fact this idea could be adapted for wedding favours,gift boxes or anything else that takes your fancy!

It is easy to download a pattern.
Cut out the shape.
Crease and fold and send with lots of love.
He loved it!
