Gift For A Friend

I have a friend that is crazy about zebra print and black & white...and I get to spend a week with her during convention!!! I thought I would throw together a fun little gift of her favorite things.

The suitcase is like the one on the cover of the last Mini Catalog Stampin' Up! had out. I ordered it from Creative Express. Also the inspiration for one of the suitcases in my new Traveling Trio tutorial.
Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Old Olive DSP & Cast-A-Spell DSP
Accessories: Flower, Daisies #2 die-cut, Lots of Tags Sizzlits die-cut, Big Shot, Scalloped Edge Punch, Modern Label Punch, Vintage Brads, Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Pretties Kit Pearls
Left: 2 Coffee Cup candles
Middle: Box #2 die-cut, two of them back to back to form a mini carrier for the tiny bottles of martini ingredients.
Right: Three hazelnut chocolates all dressed up.

Notebook Purse
This was a little composition notebook from the school supply aisle. I cut off the corners to make it into a purse.

She is going to LOVE this!

  7. Becky, this is sooo cute! I love it! What kind of paper cutter did you cut the notebook? Do you think the Stampin Up table top cutter could do the job? Thanks for all the great ideas. Keep it up!
