Althea's DIY Birthday Box

There's three beautiful Althea cake box to collect this year!

Hey Altheans! We've been having a blast so far in the month of July, and we've just been reeling in the amazing festivities! We hope you've been enjoying yourself too, and that you've gotten a thing or two out of it as well. We couldn't leave this year's birthday celebration without doing a limited edition birthday box to show you guys, so we've decided to have a special little tea party with the whole Glam Squad to celebrate Althea turning 2!

This year's birthday theme for the box is a birthday cake that you could decorate on your own. Early this year, Althea released the XL size box which could fit even more things inside (bigger and better). Now Althea has three different size boxes - the small, large and extra large. For Althea's Birthday, each of the boxes will have its own colour pastel purple, pink and mint green.

For some delicious fun, we've included some decorations for you to get creative with including a cake bunting kit and some paper cut outs to adorn your very own Althea cake. Ready to get crafty?

The cake buntings come in 3 different colours: pink, blue and rainbow. We've used the pink one for our box (Althea's colour is pink!) and stuck it to the back of the box using some tape. Alternatively, you can poke holes into the top of the box and pop them in that way. The set also comes with little flags that you can add to the box for extra festiveness.

Time to get cutting! There are two different paper decorations: one consists of a cool 3D number "2" in pink, and another contains adorable pictures that are celebration themed.

Once you've cut everything out, put the number "2" together following the instructions given on the card (stick together with tape or glue for best results). Cut out the paper decor and place little pieces of tape or glue on the little flaps for it to stick onto the box wherever you like. If you're feeling a little extra, you can even add your own stickers or decorations to add to your birthday cake!

Here's how our box turned out

Super pretty right? We're absolutely in love! We hope you find this little guide helpful, and we can't wait to see all your creative entries to the Fly Me To Korea contest!

  1. Annyeonghaseyo!an avid Althean here from Philippines...well,I think its still nice to have a birthday box again on Althea's next year birthday,but kinda different one...and I think its a good idea if it would be up to us (Altheans) on how to decorate the box,using recycled materials,and that would be more creative too,right? And also environment-friendly too.It's gonna be a big challenge to us,Altheans!Saranghae!
