hey everyone!
Ok, so its my friends birthday in a months time, but me wanting to be prepared, i decided to start making her present today, She's mad about Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen + shes getting the film for her birthday, So, I wanted to make her a box full of p+p type things.So far, I've come up with a tshirt with pictures on + i've made little fimo pink heart beads + im going to make her a little fimo darcy + elizabeth beads, but does anybody have any other ideas?
It would be very useful if you do

         Hmmm...this could take some stretching.  It's not like it's based on a product-based culture like ours.  You could make a rose-based fragrance spray for her out of essential oils and de-natured alcohol and call it Lady Catherine de Burgh's Eau de Rosings.  Um...a small embroidered sampler with music notes, a la Mary.  Lydia's emergency overnight pack (lipgloss, a pre-paid credit card, and condoms), Jane's emergency overnight pack (Sniffs kleenexes, dayquil, nyquil---didn't she ALWAYS have a cold?), and maybe a copy of the "sequel" Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife.  It's an exceedingly silly book, but fun anyway.

You could include ribbons. I only saw the movie, but they went to buy ribbons for the ball....Seems like "the" accessory of the time.

Faith and begorrah...

H & M had a gorgeous boy hairclip, which i bought. That was in ireland.. so im not sure if youd be able to get it..

maybe some old fashioned hairclips? victoriana was all out. like someone said.. ribbons.. loads of them, even if its just for wrapping the thing. what girl dosent love ribbons?! you could put some rose-petals in the package.. quite romantic-esque. you could get an old style photoframe, or get a cheap one, and distress it with sandpaper.. with cream and gold paint, whatever, and stick a photo of Mr.Darcy in it... Colin Firth, Matthew McFadden. Whatever she prefers! Try and get a publicity picture, you know so it looks posed, and they're lookign at the camera.. l(looks like they're staring at her), you could age it in adobe.. or the old fashioned way.. tea bags!!

wow these are really good ideas, i've got an ikea photoframe i could 'distress', how about some hankerchiefs with her initials on?

there's a book called "Jane Austen's Guide to Dating" that I have and I absolutely love it. It has the cutest cover, and has little quizes and questions that reference all of her books. Its not as lame as it sounds, its actually really awesome. its more of a fun thing, not so much an actual guide.

some more ideas Tongue

get an old jam jar, that looks old fashioned if you can.. you could put some old fashioned looking candy in it. or squares of chocolate, tie lacy fabric round the top, and seal with a ribbon!
you could get a phone book, or a nice pld looking notebook, and maybe do that up yourself.
does she have the pride and predjudice (2005) soundtrack? thats a must if she dosent, i have it, and its wonderful.

let us know how it goes!

make some writing paper and envelopes (oldey looking) because elizabeth was so into her "corrospondence" or however u spell that.
make her a sign thing maybe for her car or for as you walk through her front door-one of the most famous quotes in the book- the one about a man with a large fortune must be in want of a wife" one.
the book "the jane austen boook club"
cant think...
