Stationery Kit: A Handmade Gift.
This Christmas for the family gift exchange we had three nieces on our list. They are 13, 10, and 9 + all happen to be paper lovers. I have seen kits similar to this in the past (Suann made a lovely wedding version awhile back) and when I found the wood cigar boxes on clearance, well I knew this was the perfect opportunity to put some together.
Each of the kits were made slightly different (the patterned paper I used to line the inside of the box lids varied) but contained the same items:
-miniature memory game (could be useful in babysitting, yes?)
-Japanese masking tape
-personalized letter writing paper
-spools of colored bakers twine
I really loved putting these kits together but my favorite part was watching the girls open them, then study each and every little thing tucked inside. It's exactly what I would do if I received a box full of tiny paper-ish treasures.
