Hi everyone! I didn't think I'd have anything for you until my Artful Inkables blog hop on Saturday, but I forgot about this gift I made for my friend, Maria, for her birthday. She had gotten me a Pandora bracelet for my birthday last year and got herself one as well. We've been buying charms for each other for gifts (super easy gift)! I needed something to place the charm in, so I used one of Lauren Meader's My Timeless Templates called Pack a Picnic. I actually cased this one of Lauren's, that when I saw it, my mouth just dropped and I knew I would be casing it sooner or later. I made a card a while back that gave me the reason to make this lovely gift. I used PTI's Polka Dot Basics stamped in white craft ink. I was supposed to use some decorative scissors on the green lid, but in my haste I forgot! The strawberry is from Flourishes new Strawberry set. I used PTI's ribbon to tie it all up. Here's an aerial view of it. Needless to say, the strawberries were eaten as soon as these pictures were taken! I LOVE strawberries! Here's a picture of the card with the gift box. I made this card for one of the My Time challenges and also for a Copic Creations challenge. I thought it was such a pretty gift and so did Maria! Oh, and the gift was a charm with ruby stones (not real!) which is her birthstone.
I'll be back tomorrow with an invitation for my nephews' birthday party. Thanks for stopping in today!
