birthday package

It was my friend Erin's birthday earlier this month and I sent her a birthday package to help her celebrate! Here are some highlights...
I stamped this card for her on a scrap piece of letterpressed paper.
See the amazing anatomical heart stamp? She gave that to me for my birthday:
isn't it beautiful?!

I made her this birthday banner at the after school program where I work.

I made her this tote bag...
(Get it?! Get it?! It was Braeden's idea.)
I covered these match boxes and cut down these candles so they would fit.
And here's all those goodies (plus some).
It was really fun to make. I packed it in a box filled with water balloons that I blew up (not with water, obviously) so that when she opened it it was like the party had already started.

...and I loved it! It was the best present I got for my birthday, fact. Also, I'm so glad you like the stamp!

I'm a little (a lot) embarrassed at how long it took me to get the tote. And a lot embarrassed that I tried to spell a lot like this "alot".
