Mari-Ann's 2-5-7-10 box

I wanted to give my very good friend, Mari-Ann, just a little something for her birthday. We don't get each other big gifts or anything (there are enough birthday parties for kids and baby showers around here to last a lifetime as far as gift-giving!!), but we do give each other little treats on our birthdays. She gave me some yummy cookies before I went to my sister's wedding in August for mine to eat in the car, along with a card.

Anyway, I made this little box for her from THIS tutorial on SCS, and filled it with the little goodies you see to the side of the box. She's one of my friends that really appreciates my stamped gifts so I always enjoy giving her random cards, or things like this. Did I mention that she lives right across the street from me? What a blessing to have such a good friend so close! Anyway, happy birthday to you, Mari-Ann! Our friend Kathryn also has a birthday today, but I haven't made it over to her house to give her her little treat, so I won't post it until tomorrow. Until then....

Stamps: Doodle This, See You Around jumbo wheel
Ink: Black StazOn, Soft Sky, Green Galore, Barely Banana, Elegant Eggplant
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Accessories: Corner Rounder punch, Crop-A-Dile, Soft Sky Double-Stitched Ribbon, Liquid Glue, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals, Blender Pen


  1. Very nice present. Your friend will love it! I see you have my favorite chocolates in the pic. Great set-up for the photo!

  2. This looks great. I love the colors you put together. The ribbon is so pretty and I love how you placed the image. The white space really makes it pop!
