Birthday gifts

I'm currently in a whirlwind of gift making. A dear friend of mine has her birthday (today actually, her gift will be late, oops!) and is having a really rough time with life right now, so I decided to send her a special gift. This is the one with the pink butterfly card, and everything is going along the pink theme here!



This little box was a great idea I found on Pinterest and modified for the supplies I had on hand and could find at the dollar store.


Inside is a variety of small objects and a poem:

Your hope chest…
A star to remind you to keep shining
A
paperclip to help you hold it all together
An
eraser to fix all your mistakes
A
lock to keep all your secrets safe
A
penny so that you’re never broke
An
elastic to help you stretch beyond your limitss
A bottle of
glitter for when life’s in need of a little more bling
A
bandaid for when you fall and scrape yourself
A
marble for the day you’re sure you’ve lost yours
A
candle so you always have light
And a
mint for when life just stinks.



I also included a frame I had sitting around with a stamped quote in it, a feather boa, some candy and a small notebook. I ended up adding a friendship bracelet I made while sitting in front of the TV too.


I made another box for a different friend, I'll post photos of that when I'm done with it!
