A little herb gift

I found some French herbs in a gourmet store and thought my friend Melissa would enjoy them. So they are a little part of her birthday gift. Luckily she doesn't read my blog much, so she won't see this before she gets it! I wanted to pretty them up a bit. So I used one of these Martha Stewart treat boxes from Michaels and decorated it with some Rubber Romance stamps. They are available at the Etsy site.

I think it came out cute and will make a nice little presentation! Funny thing is, my four year old, Liam, saw it and said, wow, mom that is beautiful, but why are you giving someone pencil sharpenings? I thought that was funny!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Recipe:
Stamps: Diva Chef and sentiments from Rubber Romance
Ink: Memento Tux. Black, Tempting Turquoise
Paper: PTI ssw, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black
Embellishments: nesties, copics, crystal effects, ribbon
