Friends & Flowers Scrappin Kit

My son's girlfriend, Allie, had a birthday last week. Since we were in Las Vegas, I didn't get a chance to give her a present. She will be home from college this weekend, so I finished up the covered lunch box tin, RSVP pen and envelopes (I had the cards done last week). She mentioned the last time she was here that she always uses a bunch of thank you notes (she is studying to be a teacher). I thought a tin full of thank yous would be a nice gift for her.

I made 25 cards from 1/2 Friends & Flowers Scrappin Kit (retired) that I had left over and then covered the lunch box tin with the matching printed paper. I figure, it will be easy to refill her tin when she needs more. I left all the insides blank for her to write personal messages. I did use my George Cricut cartridge to cut out the letters for CARDS on top of the tin from Chocolate Chip cardstock. I also used an assortment of ribbon to decorate the handles of the lunch box tin. Around the middle, the wide satin chocolate ribbon that was on sale in December is SO nice! I secured it with Sticky Strip, but it ties it!

In addition to the Lunch box tin of cards, I also bought her a hot pink scarf to match the Vera Bradley purse we got her for Christmas. You know...those scarves that are so popular right now. I'm sure she will like it, too!

Happy Valentine's Day!

WOW! Can I be your adopted sister? Very cool gift. I love making those cards from the scrapping kits - they seem to put themselves together! Always enjoy seeing what you've created. Nancy in South Bend, IN
