I cased Tracy...


Totally cased these earrings. I fell in love with Tracy's beautiful jewelry a while ago. Especially the little rondell thing she uses in some of her earrings. Well I "accidentally" walked through the bead section of my local craft store the other day and what caught my eye..... those rondells of course. I had no idea what I was doing but I had to have them. Then I found these pretty pink beads and these grayish/black hematite beads. So I made a bracelet for myself and a bracelet and earrings for my cousin's birthday this weekend.

Then I needed a nice package so I came up with this matchbox type thing. I made an insert to hold the earrings and bracelet in place, that sits inside of the box. All of the paper and ribbon is PTI - Sweet Blush and Stampers Select. It doesn't show up at all but I used my brand-spankin' new JustRite stamper to decorate the box with silver ink. There are circles of Happy Birthday with 2U in the center all over the paper. So that was all great fun, now I need a card.
Have a great weekend everyone.




ETA: Forgot, I also got the little matchbox idea from Tracy's blog too. Nothing original here at all. You should really check out her stuff it is awesome.
