Oh oh oh! (jumping up and down) I can't tell you how excited I am about my post tonight!
It's my youngest son's birthday tomorrow and, because he's been busy saving up his pennies for a very expensive item, we are giving him money. The trouble with money is that it doesn't necessarily look very thrilling so I've been racking my brains to think of a good way to present it. This is the result of my deliberations:
It's a Chocolate Chip pirate chest! Here it is from the back...
...and a close-up of the fastening.
Here it is open.
I love my little pirate chest! Do you like the way it looks as if it's seen some action? (It's okay - I'll calm down in a minute...)
Supplies (Stampin' Up unless specified)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Piercing tool, corner rounder, vintage brads (from stash)
Do you think it would be going too far to wear an eye patch and a parrot on my shoulder tomorrow?
Actually, all joking aside, I'd better get to bed as I'm sure to be woken up at the crack of dawn by a very excited boy!
See you tomorrow.
