Late Birthday Gift...Isn't it Fabulous?

About 2 weeks ago, a few of my stamping friends and I got together for a shoebox swap.  We also celebrated a few birthdays that had recently passed....including mine!  Each gift was fun and they were given in grab bag fashion to those of us who recently celebrated....this one was what I received.  Check out the container...can you guess what it is?  This is just such a clever idea.  Give up?  It's a strawberry container.  I don't know about you, but I don't think I'll ever look at those containers the same way again!

As you can see, Annette , put some shredded paper inside, tied some of that wonderful black stripe grosgrain around the side and decorated the top with Basic Black cardstock, a greeting and some butterflies.  Isn't this fun?!!

And, now you want to know about the inside, don't you?!!  There's a small glass candle holder, decorated with some Crumb Cake Seam Binding and a ribbon rose.  Of course, there's a candle inside and 2 extra candles were included as well.  Not sure about you, but I thought this was a wonderfully, creative way to make a simple gift so much more special.  Thank you, Annette, for such a awesome gift!
