A Fun Gift

Last Saturday, I wrote a post
that included a couple of
weblinks for fun stuff related
to Valentine's Day.
One of the sites suggested giving
a TREASURE BOX as a gift to a
friend but I think this could be
expanded to kids. In the picture
you will see that this box is geared
toward CARD MAKING. Silicone
baking cups were used to hold
goodies like bits of ribbon, thread,
string, small rubber stamps, buttons,
felt balls and plain cards. All of it
was placed in a hinged wooden box
and then wrapped with a pretty bow.
Be creative with your containers, as
they say "Think outside of the box."
Themes for GIRLS:
Crafts/Jewerly making
Dress-up
Painting/drawing/coloring
Small games
Themes for BOYS:
Playdough/tools/cookie
Painting/drawing/coloring
Small games
Toolbox
These are great for Valentine's
Day but they would be fun for
birthdays too!
HAPPY CREATING!

  8. That's a cute idea. I need to make something for my niece's daughter for Valentine's Day so maybe I'll do a craft supply one for her. I like that silicone baking cup idea.
