Wouldn't this be a fun little gift for Gabby, just to let her know that we're thinking of her? Perhaps a different color scheme and stamp images would be a bit better – sending a Valentine gift to someone you don't know is a wee bit creepy. I do think that she has been a real inspiration to us as she is valiantly fighting to recover from her devastating injuries, and it would be nice to show our appreciation.
We created this project in our last club meeting, and frankly it received mixed reviews. The ladies loved the cute stamps that we used for the Nugget wrappers, and they definitely saw uses other than Valentine's Day for the ensemble. But, I have a couple of "box haters" in the group, so they were dismayed to see that we were making a box. And then there was the medallion (lollie) on the top. Oy! The gals were real troopers, and they actually did fine, although the medallion took a bit of wrangling to get it to go into the desired shape. One of the ladies is actually considering making a bunch of these as wedding favor gifts! Won't that be lovely?!?
