Had to quickly come up with a b-day gift for a 9 year old and as Hello Kitty is still very "in" I made a necklace:
I've placed it in a special birthday gift can with a fake bottom and then added a bunch of marshmallows. So When the b-day girl had to open the can (with a real can top!) she discovered only marshmallows so she handed them out and much to her surprise found the necklace in a cute green chiffon jewelry bag!
I like surprises, don't you?
so while I was at it I made my youngest 1.5yo her first
"mommy made" necklace and she loves it!
