Pretty little gift box.

So happy today is Friday!  I've been lost all week long, thinking Tuesday was Wednesday and Wednesday was Thursday.  Today is Friday, for real!

On Wednesday I posted a picture of my desk and there was a half cut doily on there for my sisters birthday gift.  Well, that doily didn't work.  And it wasn't actually for her gift.  It was to decorate the box that her gift was going in :)


I bought this little Kraft colored jewelry box at Michael's.  I thought about stamping on it and then I thought that might be kind of difficult with all the edges.  Then I thought about wrapping it with the twine and making a tag, but all the tags were too big.  So that's when I headed for the doilies.  The first doily was too small (I'm feeling like Golidlocks here)  the second doily was just right!


I wrapped around the grey twine and used grey ink to stamp the to: and from:.  I love how this turned out!  So simple and easy!

Speaking of my sister, Sunday is her 40th birthday!  I'm trying to be nice here because that will be me in five years :)  In honor of my sister, my mom, sister, aunt, cousins and I are having a girls weekend!  I'm so excited!  The girls each have birthday parties this weekend and I have a bunch of crafty things I want to work on too, so somehow we're going to have to work it all in!  What are your plans?

Thanks for popping in today.  I hope you have  an awesome weekend!  See you soon!

  7. That is so cute! Sounds like a busy weekend for you :o) My only plan is to go to lunch with hubby since the last couple of weekends got messed up and we have had to re-schedule :o) Other than that, not a lot going on, just how I like it! Hugs and have a fantastic weekend!
