Wow, it's been an interesting couple of days; I've been going full-force with no slowing down. But I'm a lot like that little energizer bunny, I keep going and going and going....!!! LOL!
I thought you'd all like to know how absolutely thrilled my friend and her hubby were with the money box!!! Everyone at their celebration just "oohed and awed" over it! It really was such a fun gift to give. I've actually been asked for instructions and I'll try to put something together; however, this box came along as I was constructing it and I didn't note or tutorialize it. I just completed it, took a picture and gave it to the happy couple. But I know how to do this again and, like I said, I'll put something together for you when I have more time.
Now regarding the project I'm sharing today and an award I received. I'll save the best for last and begin with my project! Hoping to get a headstart on Christmas presents this year, I was thinking on little Christmas presents I'd like to pass around and/or use as stocking stuffers and, well, while browsing in a Dollar Tree store I saw these little bibles. Once I saw them, I knew just what I was going to do. Now the first one is not decorated or embellished for Christmas because the hubby lost another close friend and because I'd come up with the idea, I thought it would also be a nice little gift for the deceased's family, so this one I made as a condolence gift. I plan on dressing the others up more appropriate for Christmas. Anyway, you'll get the idea. Here's my bible in a box gift idea:
This next picture is the side of the box:
This last picture shows the bible I purchased for $1 which the box houses. You'll also notice the paper which was used on the side of the box also complements the inside bottom of the box:
Really I think this little gift can accommodate about almost any occassion depending on how you embellish it. And it probably cost less than $2, considering the cost of the sheet of paper! So, I hope you like it, and that it inspires a nice little gift giving project for you too!
Now I'd like to please take just another moment to share an award that I recieved from two wonderful family-friends: Eva and Jani. They both passed me the Versatile Blogger Award:
Thank you ladies so very much!!! I appreciate each time I'm thought for something so special as these awards. As I'm still considering who I'll be passing this award on to, I like to postpone doing that until I have more time to give it appropriate attention; therefore, I'll be back later to post who will be receiving it from me. I hope you ladies don't mind! In the meantime, I hope everyone visits my family-friends by clicking on their names (which are direct links to their blogs) and tour their wonderful blogs for fun and inspiration!
Well, that's it for now. However, I do want to thank you for stopping by to spend this time with me. Hugs to you all, and...
I'll be seeing you!
