Ok, so my partner is MIA. But here is the awesome package I sent her.  Zombies and Day of the Dead were two of her favorite themes, so that is what everything is based on.

First a Zombie Defense Station - made from a picture frame, 2 wooden trays and a FBI/detective kit.


Here is the survival guide in better detail - I am forever indebted to Bunny in a Bear and his sweet Zombie Defense Station here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=202668.0 for the survival guide and inspiration:


I even included a warning label on the back that says "WARNING: This Zombie Defense Station is for entertainment purposes only, in the event of the actual zombie apocalypse, RUN!"

Next is a set of Day of the Dead themed fascinator style head bands, made from these Victorian-style cameos I found at my dollar store. I drew in some dark eyes and stitches on the mouth with an ultra fine sharpie to make them more day of the dead/zombie like.  The feathers came from a dream catcher at my dollar store.  I made the decorations detachable, that way she could put them on a clip or move them to a different headband.


I made her some Day of the Dead tea towels.  One towel has a tattoo style bird banner on one side that says "Eat, Drink and Be Merry", and on the opposite side, it has a Day of the Dead skull and says "For Tomorrow We DIE". 
Front:

Back:


The second towel just has a skull.


Both together:


Last, I planned on making her a chandelier out of pink flamingos, like this one from her pininsterst: http://pinterest.com/pin/3533080/, but I couldn't figure out how to get it together on just dollar store materials.  So I sent her the flamingos and battery powered tea lights as a 'kit'


So that's my dollar store swap package. I really liked how everything turned out, and I hope my package is being enjoyed.

Aww, Leeska, that was a fabulous package.  I am so sad that your partner didn't reciprocate.  We'll find you an awesome angel, I promise.

This gallery is amazing and shows just how creative everyone on here is. This stuff doesn't look anything like the dollar store!!

The zombie kit is absolutely hilarious and I love that you found a way to use those plastic play sets. I hope you get an angel soon because everything you made was amazing.

The mushroom bag is also adorable and I was cracking up at the photo of the "eye pod".
