Birthday Gift

Happy Saturday! It's been cloudy here today but warm and windy. We spent the morning sanding and glazing our kitchen island. It turned out great! I just love it when you picture a project in your head and it turns out just as you imagined! Not only did that happen with our island but also today's project. This is a little something I made for my sister's birthday, which was April 22nd. I took a 4x6 notepad and stamped her initial in the bottom right corner of all the pages with my Just Rite Monogram Stamper, in brown ink. Then I made a simple box for it, trimming it with chocolate brown cardstock pieces I punched with my Fiskar's Threading Water Punch. I lined the inside of the box with Bitty Dots Basics patterned paper from Papertrey Ink. I tied a brown and white polka dotted ribbon around the notepad and set it inside the box. To wrap it, I simply folded the box up with some tissue paper and tied some more brown and white polka dotted ribbon around it to secure it. I made a coordinating card, which I'll share next week, and tucked it inside the ribbon. Hope you have a great weekend, see you next week!

Here's a picture of the notepad and inside of the box.

And last, a side view of the notepad in the box.
