A Petite Present

Recently I made a tiny little gift box for a great friend, whom I've been friends with for over 20 years...yikes! I had an old container which I just couldn't throw away (this my friends seems to be the story of my life...'hmmm, I can do something with that')...

I then glued scrap paper onto the box...

Then came the petite gift that I made in pottery last year, which I imprinted using a vintage Indian block print stamp...

I added twine to make a little ornament...

Placed it gently into the box...

And voila a petite gift for my friend...

Hope she likes it as much as I love her! Do you all keep crap stuff that you think could come in handy some day like I do? 


  1. Danielle it is precious!! I love this idea and will certainly save these little boxes from now on!

  2. Yes I do! I love those little bits and bobs and nothing is more satisfying than being able to use that stuff to make something cute! Good job Danielle!

  3. How very charming.

    My gift wrap closet is filled with my scraps and pieces from my grandmother's 70+ years as a seamstress. Makes gift wrapping oh so special.

  4. Hey- that looks familiar! :) I loved the box and ceramic ornament! Thank you so much...xoxox
