THANK YOU GIFT SET
I also purchased a jade necklace (which I should have taken a picture of, but I had already nicely placed it in the box) that I ordered from one of the neighborhood kids' school fundraisers - yes, jewelry and not cookies! How odd! The fundraiser had a great selection of jewelry. The necklace already came in a box of its own (which I still kept it in), but I wanted to make something special box to put it in. I've been telling my mom how much stamping and crafting I have been doing so I thought it would show off some of the things I have been doing. I thought the mini pizza box was perfect in size. You can click here for the mini pizza box tutorial...
Here are samples of the thank you notes I made for my mom. She wanted to give the people who volunteered to help set-up, run errands and cook food for the party. I had to make 15 of these so, again, I needed to find something simple. I found this card made by Cindy Williams (cwilliams) and cased it...I made her two kinds since I ran out of the brown ribbon, but I think I like the one with the twine.
I remember when I was an executive assistant (way back when...) that I used a notebook to keep track of To Do's, phonecalls, etc... so I made her a composition notebook with matching jumbo clips and pen. I also created a pocket on the inside front cover for misc items.
Well, that is it…told you it was a very looong post and I had lots to share!
