"Basketball Gift Set"


I finally finished this gift set. Whew!! I have to say that this was the hardest gift set I have made. I love how it turned out but man, it was tough. I am making it for Sara's daughter. Her school colors are maroon and white. That's it. Just the two colors. That's what made it hard. I tried to find some pattern paper that I could use but I never found the right color. It is pretty cute though. I hope she likes it. Sara's daughter plays basketball but has a knee injury right now. I was only supposed to make the one set but it was taking me so dang long to do it I decided to make two so Sara's daughter can give one to a friend if she wants. I only made one card holder though but two of everything else. I also left the cards blank so she can stamp what ever greeting she wants when she is ready to give them away. I don't own these stamps either. Sara was kind enough to borrow them to me. I feel bad, I have had them since before Christmas. Thanks Sara.

Rochelle, you did a wonderful job on this project. I'm wondering where you get the ziplock baggies from that you used here.

I get my ziploc baggies at Joanns you get 100 bags for around $2. I have also found them at Walmart and Michaels. I think they are 3 x 4
