gifts for a girl

i whipped up a couple of inexpensive personalized birthday gifts over the past couple of days as triple j had a birthday party to attend last night.

here's what i made.....

on the left we have a button letter c - which i made like the button letter g in this tutorial here.

and on the right we have a jar which i spray painted for the birthday girl to store ribbons - or whatever she likes. i made it as per the tutorial for goob's storage jar here.

we wrapped it all up with a packet of goodies inside like these.....


and a pretty bow attached.....

so, what do you think - have you ever made birthday gifts yourself?????

i do hope they (the parents) don't think i'm being 'cheap'??
my girls would absolutely love hand-made gifts such as these - would yours????
i do worry about such things!
triple j said that casey really loved them at the party tonight. i'm so pleased about that.

with me studying - money is tighter than ever around here. hopefully things will settle into a better pattern soon - or the money fairy will visit during the night!!!?!?!

i can live in hope!
