I thought I would post some pictures of the package I just sent out for a swap I did on Swap-bot.com. It was an October Swap and my partner really likes Hippos and Hello Kitty, so I pretty much went with that. I like how the case came out, but the lighting was bad when I took the pictures so a lot of the details are left out.

This is the group picture before I wrapped everything up.
There is the shoebox I spray painted with the stencil I used (I sent that along too), 2 matchboxes that match the case, with small cavas patches on top with tiny birthday cards inside, hippo earrings, magnets, and a zipper pull, 3 hippo painted wooden pieces, sewn hippo pillow-thing holding 1 hippo pin and 5 Hello Kitty pins, a (purchased) birthday card and a sheet of Hello Kitty Stickers.

Outside of case.

Inside of empty case.

Inside of full case.

Sewn Hippo Pillow-thing With pins. (first time sewing something like that, it didn't come out the way I wanted.)

Ready to go.

This is really a beautiful set !!!
I guess your swap partner enjoyed recieving your package ^^
Everything's cute, especially the hippo earrings! You probably spent a long time doing all these things, I hope you're satisfied with the results~

Thank you! I had a lot of fun creating the package and I was pleased with how the box with all of the hippo stuff came out. My swap partner said she liked it but didn't say anything of detail. I just hope she liked it all as much as I did.
