A special friend had a birthday last week and the girls were very excited to make her something extra wonderful. They have both received such amazing handmade gifts from her. This is a box of their artwork— ready to be taken to any room and displayed, and changed, at a moment's notice.
There are 6 drawings enclosed which are reduced down from the girls' originals. They are mounted on 4-ply museum board with the titles and their names on the back. The titles kill me—very funny.
I had a happy crafting moment when I found a little plastic easel that fit perfectly in the box. I love it when that happens. I was thinking a small wood easel would be cute, but this works great too.
The glass-lidded green box was one I had saved. It used to have labels in it and was waiting to be used for something. Perfect. The girls were so proud putting this together. They took a lot of time explaining each drawing to Emily and she and I could barely keep a straight face during the lengthy detailed descriptions which involved a crazy naked party (!), a ballet performance, and cookies. What more does one need?
I love these kinds of gifts because other than the plastic easel, everything came from around the house.
