Weekend Flair

My sister is someone that has nearly everything, thus I enjoy giving her unique gifts, often homemade! This year for her birthday, I made about 20 cards (birthday, holiday, anniversary, and thank you), and then decorated a cute little tin to store the cards.

Supply List:

  • Tin lunch box from Archivers (it was on clearance!)
  • "CARDS" chipboard letters from Provo Craft
  • Black cardstock (for covering letters and solid black line)
  • Pattern paper from: ? (Now it is all glued down and I can't find what I used! I'm trying to find out!)
  • Metal flower embellishments from: All My Memories
  • I also used glue dots for the Metal flowers and a tape runner for sticking everything else on!

What do you give the person that has everything? What kind of fun stuff have you made for gifts?


  1. What a cute idea! I would LOVE a gift like that. Your sister is lucky. :)

    Recently I was in a Valentine card swap (I'll be blogging about that later), and I made homemade Valentine cards for the 2 girls I was paired up with. It was really fun!

  2. That was such a clever and thoughtful gift!

    In fact, I might have to steal your idea sometime if I don't know what to give for a gift.

  3. How cute! I have given cards before. I have also made several cross-stitch pieces and framed them for gifts. That was a while ago, though. I have been thinking about starting to do more cards.

  4. Next time you want to send such a creative gift to someone you can have my address. I would love to get this!!

  5. That is really cute. I scrapbook, but I'm intimidated to try my hand at cards. I think because with a scrapbook, I have the photo to base what I'm going to do. With a card there is so much blank space! I also never know what to do about envelopes. :)

  6. Maybe I'll put one of these together for a future giveaway! Stay tuned :)
