First I started with the famous Birthday Box
(A full tutorial on how I made the box can be found here)
Secondly I was so graciously given these beautiful flower hair barrettes by my sister Jenn. Thanks Jenn, they are super cute. To make them find your favorite 'fake' flower at your local craft store. Remove the center part of the flower and sew a button in its place. Finally hot glue a barrette (also found at your local craft store) onto the back of the flower.
Third, I found this idea from one of J's previous posts. They were so easy to make. All I had to use was ribbon, a needle and thread, rings (I found a package of adjustable rings at Michaels in the jewelry section), and a hot glue gun. You can find the complete tutorial on how to make these here. I love them so much and I can't even imagine what a little girl will think of them! I just might have to make myself one too!
And lastly I have fallen in love with this idea: Magnetic Paper Dolls. Again, this idea came from one of J's previous posts. And the full tutorial on how to make them can be found here. I have already made these for Little L and they have yet to come off the refrigerator. Every day she plays with them, dressing them up into all their fancy dresses. This project was so easy and fun to do I only wish they had magnetic dolls like these when I was growing up! But watching Little L enjoy them is just as wonderful.
And so there you have it..a special birthday gift for a special birthday girl!
