I have lots to show you. I was going to wait until after the birthday bash but it’s just too good to wait. Ann and Linda, avert your eyes so you don’t ruin the surprise.
These are what I’m calling “birthday rings”. I am going to offer them online with adorable packaging. Luckily, though, they arrived just in time for me to share with the two birthday girls.
I made one of these for each of us…sort of scrapbooking in a jar.
I included a few truly vintage tags and fun embellishments and we’ll add mementos from the weekend, like maybe extinguished birthday candles, a wine label, and other little things to remind us of the fun weekend.
is what I made for my friend Ann’s birthday present. Maybe you remember my post about this money book back in December when I made one for my mother.
The secret to making this is to use hot glue (and plenty of it!) to make a sort of pad of the stack of dollar bills. It doesn’t hurt the money one little bit and the recipient can just tear off a buck when she needs it.
If you want complete instructions, leave your email address in a comment. Remember that I’m going to be away most of this week, okay?
