A Golden Birthday


A friend of mine is celebrating her birthday today, so I got her a gift card and made her a little treat box of candy to go along with the card. Everything but the ribbon is by SU! on both the card and fry box. I got some Lindor white chocolate truffles because they're wrapped in gold foil papers, and I wanted to keep everything in keeping with the golden color theme. I forgot to photograph the card before I sealed it in the envelope (DUH) but I'm not going to open it now! LOL The white ribbon has gold stripes in it, and the larger ribbon was recycled from a food gift someone gave us last Christmas.



Here's a close up of the fry box (made with a SU! frybox die) which includes 3 tiny tags tied onto the ribbon.

Here's wishing you a happy weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

What a lovely gift for your friend. Clever to keep all in the same colors - even to the candy choice. Well done, you, on the recycling effort, looks great. Love the glitter on the box, and had to laugh about forgetting to photo the card. Been there, done that! Happy Sunday, Happy Birthday to your friend, and TFS
