I had seen some examples of "_____ in a box" gifts, so I decided to make "Hawaii in a Box" for my mother in law for Mother's Day since she was born there.  The best thing about this project was I found that a store specializing in Hawaiian items was less than 20 minutes from my house (I live in NW suburbs of IL...go figure).  I bought many of the items, but I made the cover of the little notebook and the postcard with my daughter on the front.  It was a fun challenge to find items that would fit my theme.  Thanks for looking!

I tend to lick circular things.

I think it looks great!  I'm also in the suburbs and I didn't know there was a Hawaiian specialty store anywhere near here!

The store is called the Barefoot Hawaiian in Des Plaines, IL.  There is also a restaurant down the street called the Tiki Terrace (I think they are connected in some manner).  Thank you for looking at my pics...I know it isn't too crafty, but I think my MIL will like it  Grin
