Create your own card & tin!

I have worked on this project all weekend long - off and on of course, but I've still spent a lot of time on it! It's a birthday gift for one of our youngest daughter's friends. Our DD missed the b-day party, but hey, we still wanted to get the b-day girl a gift.

This is a make your own card kit! :D

The b-day girl loves pink and zebra print, so I went to work. The kit contains enough for her to make 8 note cards with her initial as a focal point. The cards are made up of pink, black & white card stock, scalloped circles in two sizes and two colors (black & pink). Each of the large scalloped circles have been accented with either liquid pearls or stickles. What fun! And then there are 8 white circles with her initial with 2 different borders.

I included a tape runner and pop dots for her to put all the cards together. AND I found some fuzzy zebra print ribbon - seriously, what little girl wouldn't love putting her own cards together?

In the 3rd picture you can see the fuzzy print ribbon in the upper left-hand corner; it's fab! I then went to work making a tin to house all her b-day goodies. I painted the tin pink and then added flocked zebra print paper to the bottom portion of the tin. I added a strip of light pink/white/dark pink ribbon around the top of the zebra paper, then I added the white pom pom ribbon around the top of the lid. Tied on lots of ribbon to the handle, added a flower to the front and then those adorable swirly pink jewels. Isn't that cute?

This last picture shows the inside of the tin - all she needs to make her note cards AND a little purse which contains scented shower gel and lotion. Both my girls thought the gift turned out great...and if my teen thinks that - then I've been very successful. LOL

Thanks for popping in; I hope you've enjoyed this new 3D creation. Have a great week! Hugs, ~M.
