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!
