I dont know whats up with die_on_a_rope.... the usps website said my package arrived on the 15th and she hasnt contacted me at all. so i guess ill post the stuff i sent her.
The note book was the big part of the package. I took a pice of corrugated cardboard and glued some fun scrapbooking paper on to it. then i sewed on (using my machine) all of the ribbon, lace and bias tape. use another piece of cardboard for the back (its nice white stuff from the scrapbooking isle) add some eyelets and loose binder rings and walla.
The pen is actually a feather from my pet peacock. Trimmed it down so it was actually useable (ive seen feather pens with two foot long feathers, not practical) and glued it to the pen with some fun orange ribbon.
and this is what it came in. When I made it i figured it would be used to store the notebook and then papers for a class. Will she use it? I dont know but i still think its cool. Its fuzzy pink fabric that ive had FOREVER, the green is grosgrain ribbon and the redbow is actually maxi-piping. I figured then if she doesnt like it its tie on, and she has some red piping to playwith.
Hope you guys like the stuff, and I hope she likes it...
*EDIT* I dont know why the pictures are so gosh darn small, but i can get bigger ones if anyone would like to see the notebook bigger. The bag doesnt have too much detail but the notebook does.
