Sweet and Sparkly 16~
Morgan asked me if I would make a container of sorts for her best friend, Mikie, for her 16th birthday. After a bit of back and forth on what to use for the container, I suggested one of the lunchbox tins; she agreed, which was a good thing as I still have a large box of them under the desk here! Morgan wanted the colors and patterns to be Mikie's favorite, so it's turquoise, cheetah, and bling - perfect for a 16 year old girl!
The tin is filled with M&M packets and a gift card to her favorite clothing store. I deconstructed the gift card holder from the store and made a cheetah one instead. The card ties into the box in it's layout, complete with all those ribbons tied into the holes created with the Fiskar's Threading Waters punch.
They're out to dinner tonight celebrating at a local mexican food restaurant, so it's safe for me to post a pic now!
