In between coughing spasms, med reactions and sleepless nights from the worst case of bronchitis I've ever had, I managed to finish my special birthday project for my 93 yr old aunt. I got the template from Card Carousel and only modified it by adding a base so I could attach a music button that plays 'Happy Birthday'. I cut a thin piece of styrofoam to hold a large bouquet of Wild Orchid flowers inside the lid and decorated the outside with some peel offs and ribbon. I used more peel offs and ribbon, plus the music charm, on the acetate display box. Voila! Now to find a mailing box so I can ship it off in time for her big day. It took me three tries to get the piano together correctly, but I think it was worth the effort.
