Young man!

Have you ever needed a last minute gift? I did yesterday... friends of ours were having a birthday party for their son. Anthony was turning 11... I find gets harder to shop for kids as they get older. So a gift card was the best way to go, he could now buy whatever he wanted! 

I didn't just want to give him the gift card... I wanted to make it a little more personal. So I thought of making him a personalized tumbler and stick the gift card inside the glass. Still I wasn't happy, now I needed a gift bag with a matching card. So here is what I came up with... cute right?

For the milk carton I created the file in SCAL and cut it with my Silhouette Cameo.  The card I thought of using ribbon to create the silk tie look,  rather than cutting one out of paper. The stamp I used I found at Michael's in their dollar bin. When I put it all together the straw form the cup was sticking out, that didn't bother me too much... I actually though it was kind of cute. Punched some hole on the lid and then tied it up with some twine... and there you go a quick last minute gift!

Hope you had an amazing birthday Anthony!
