A kit for Melanie

Here is the kit I sent to Melanie for her to use to create her French Elegant Pouch.  I made six little 2.5"x2.5" square boxes to fill with her goodies.  Here is how they looked all packed up.


This is one of the boxes closed.

I wrapped the laces and trims around tickets which matched the cream, pale tealy blue and peachy pink color scheme and fit inside the bitty boxes just right.

I used coordinating scrapbook papers so the boxes even matched the kit.

The jewelry pieces and extra embellishments, plus some extra cream satin and grey silk.

This box fit four pieces of fabric rolled up all pretty.

More surprises.

An embellished salt shaker that I filled full of beads and cushioned inside the box with some wider nude-pink vintage laces.

Oh, I missed taking a photo of the flowers I sent.  I borrowed this one from Melanie.  They were my favorite part to make.

And a box full of cream goodies hopefully to dazzle and delight the lovely miss Melanie.

I have just the most fun making kits for my MAMA partners.  Something about gifting like this just makes my heart all full up.  :)  I was especially nervous to gather and pack this one up though, because Melanie was our dear hostess and I really wanted put something great together for her.  Thanks for checking it out, I can't wait to see what she makes.
