"Birthday Gift Set"


I made this for a blogging friend's daughter for her birthday. She doesn't know it is coming so I can't wait until she gets it. I got the lunch tins earlier this year at JoAnn's for $1 and the notebooks I have had forever. I got them at Target. Of course I had to use my favorite paper. It really matches the tin. I used Modge Podge to adhere the paper on the tin and on both notebooks. Super easy and very fast. I love how it turned out. Apparently so did my daughter Katie. I had to make her one as well.

Stamps: Pocket Fun, All About U
Paper: Ballet Blue, Real Red, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White, Bo Bunny DP
Ink: Basic Black, Ballet Blue, Real Red, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Hershey Nuggets, Ziploc Baggie, Brad, Lunch Tin, Modge Podge, Sponge Paint Brush, Notebooks, RSVP Pen, Microbeads, Tacky Tape

Oh, this set is very cute. I have one of them--given to me as a gift to alter, and I wish I had a second one, as I have 2 nieces. I am having a terrible time thinking of gifts for them for Christmas. One girl gets everything she wants--spoiled rotten, and the other needs practical things she can use! I think these would be good ideas for either one of them. Thanks! :) Kel
