Gifts for a Friend

I made these gifts for a dear friend of mine. I hitched a ride with her to a stamping event. I am not fond of driving where I've never been before and begging rides is something I do often! My younger sister often refers to my getting rides as, "Driving Miss Lazy!" Anyway, I appreciated the ride and I made these for my friend.

Using the Stampin' Up! set "The Snowflake Spot" I made her a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" notebook with a beaded pen. A tree ornament from a tin. I got a great deal on these tins at Oriental Trading. They are not fancy but they do the job! I ran the cranberry ribbon around the tin and made a loop with it for hanging. I made her a package of 4 gift cards and envelopes and put them in a plastic card holder and tied it with the cranberry ribbon! And lastly is the bath salts I got at Michael's in their dollar section. I just covered the front and lower sides with the card stock.

I used only two colors of card stock to make these. The Cranberry Crisp and Pretty in Pink. I did a lot of sponging which altered the Pretty in Pink color enough to soften and tone it down.

My friend was surprised and she really liked her gifts. They were very fun to make too!
