Please click i needa little bit of crafty advie :)
Hey everyone! im in a little bit of a bother! i've got a friend who im making a birthday present for, ive a made a nice hand emboidered tote bag but I need somethings to put in the bag. Im going to make a jar of basil pesto, but thats where the ideas end. I would make cookies or something but she doesnt eat that sort of stuff. shes from glasgow scotland, is a starwars fan, is primary school teacher, outdoorsy, into horse riding. i dont want to buy anything as such, make it from scratch. she gave me a Taonga (That is a treasured item in the Maori language. Greenstone and mine represents courage and strength.) so i want to do osmething nice and personal but dont want to have to spend too muh money. any sugestions?
How about a bottle of wine and some food things to go with the sauce?
Or maybe if she doesn't like cookies, do a muffin, cake, or biscuit mix in a jar.
OKay! sounds good, my mum works at the school with her so might have to be snaeky about getting her to ask about wine types! thanks
If you are going for a food theme to the bag how about some homemade napkins, placemats etc. If she is outdoorsy how about picnic style items like a lunchbag, lunch mat or a sandwich wrap. See the links below:
You could make her a pencil case to keep her stuff in for work
And you could personalize pencils to put in the bag!
Perhaps think what would go nice with the basil pesto - and include 1-2 recipe cards? If she enjoys cooking you could perhaps make her a fun apron? Or what about making her some earrings or maybe a necklace - if she wears jewellery?
