Secret Sister Swap.... What I Sent

Well, I can finally show you what occupied so much of my time at the beginning of July whilst I was on holiday. Below is the package I sent to my Secret Sister for our SBS16 swap.

I was in a bit of an unfortunate situation as my Secret Sister was actually Sonja, the organiser of the swap! Because she paired everyone up, she new who her SS was going to be. Therefore, to ensure she still had some surprises, I had to hold back on posting any pictures of my 'makes' until I knew that she had received her goodies. I saw on her blog today that she has used one of the images and has eaten all the M&M's I sent (tee hee!), so I guess this means that I am all clear to reveal all to you.......

As you can see, I made her a stationery box full of note cards and tags, a door hanger, a Post-It note holder, a bookmark and a 1 sheet book full of stamped images. Finally, I altered some fold-back clips, paperclips and a bag of M&M's.

I really hoped she liked it and finds all of the bits and pieces useful. Can't wait til our next swap at Christmas!

Pin It

Wow Stacey! You have been busy and what a lovely package to receive. I bet Sonja was chuffed to bits. Really love the altered items. Some great ideas to remember for the future. I used your 5p piece tip to create scalloped edges today! It worked a treat! Thanks :o)
