Gift Set


Hi there! It's been a few days since my last post because I've been busy planning our Disney World vacation. I knew that you needed to call way in advance for the character meal reservations (which I have already done) but I had no idea that you also should call early for regular dinner reservations too! I was still able to get most of what I wanted but not exactly at the times that I wanted. And we aren't even going until October! I hate having to plan when and where we are going to eat because who knows how we will feel that day, etc. I like not having a set plan that I have to follow...it takes the spontaneity out of it. But with "The World" there are so many people there and so much to do in little time you really are forced to have some kind of plan. It will all work out and I know we'll have a great time no matter what.

I don't know exactly why I made such a big project last night (I don't have anyone to give it to) except that I haven't done any crafting in a while and I guess I had a lot of creativity built up or something. :) I altered this lunchbox tin along with matching dividers and a thank you card. I wanted to make more cards to go with it but I ran out of DP. I'll get some more and do that later. Hope you like it.

Hi, I came across your blog through this gift set you made & posted on splitcoaststampers. Do you happen to have a template for the paper? (i.e. what size do you cut the paper so it fits all the way around the tin?)

If you could let me know, I'd appreciate it!

My email is lara.izant@gmail.com.

Thanks!
