Our niece is a bit of a soccer nut/elite player! And she's entered The Gift Card Years - meaning she's a young teen and it's just just a safer choice to get her a gift card. Sigh.



To satisfy my own selfish needs to get her a "real" gift (I know, I know), I wanted to at least put the gift card into a special-for-her container, so when I found this soccer ball box on svgcuts.com I decided it fit the bill!



I asked her mom about her team colors (red and black), embossed the black papers with stars to tart it up a bit, and went for it. I had a hard time finding soccer-specific embellishments that were a little bit girly/celebratory and NOT sold in a quantity that would leave me with a bunch of stuff I'd likely not ever use. But this bubble from a travel-themed set seemed like it would work... plus it's ball-shaped!



I had the red excelsior to cushion the gift card. YEY! Really this whole thing was made with stash even though I was prepared to buy what I needed. I tied it up with a red ribbon to 1) give it a more gift-y look and 2) make it less likely to be peeked! I'll ship it top her in a couple of weeks.

Very impressive geometry and wonderful colors.  I thought this was going to be a 20-sided die from Dungeons & Dragons when I saw the thumbnail image on the main page--soccer never even crossed my mind!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
