It's the Thought That Counts

In my earlier post I showed a gift I made for a friend of my daughter who has just become a teacher. I had some more G45 ABC Primer paper left from that project so I wanted to add a little something with her gift.
Awhile back I had purchased some of these little wood containers for a dollar at Michaels and they also had these little sewing kits for the same price that fit perfectly. I painted the box with Tattered Angels Glitter Glam "Stilletto", then covered the inside and outside with ABC Primer paper. Added some velvet and satin black ribbon to the middle. The rose was dipped in clear UTEE for a glass effect, and some vintage pearls from my Etsy store were added. Many times you don't have to spend alot on a gift for someone... check out those dollar bins at the stores and let your creativity flow.. You will be surprised in what you can make. TFL xoxo
