Sixteen Candles

My middle daughter and dearest friend, Emily, is turning sixteen today. She is such a beautiful person and sweet girl. Two of her friends are celebrating birthdays too and their party is tonight so Emily wanted to make something special for them.

Here are the cards she made along with one of the little gifts. The cards are very simple using the new Raspberry Tart designer series paper, the Pretties kit and Designer brads. I think they are really pretty and girly!

The little pouch is just a 6"x6" piece of the Raspberry Tart designer series papers folded. We've all been folding these since grade school but here's how: Fold the paper in half diagonally. With the folded edge closest to you, take the left corner and fold it UP to the right edge making another triangle shape. Repeat with the right side and fold over the flap - VOILA!

Inside the pouch is this really cute little Mini Post-It Note keychain. It's just a piece of the DSP covering the post-its and then punched with the Crop-A-Dile so a book ring could be inserted - - too cute! Emily and her newly driving friends will all appreciate a keychain and a way to jot down a phone number, tear it out and give it away. WAIT A MINUTE! What was I thinking?
