Money Bouquet

It is late, I'm bleary-eyed and brain dead, and really shouldn't be posting at this hour but I've decided to do it anyway. I guess you can tell that this will either be an incoherent post or a very short one. Or maybe both.

I made this little flower bouquet for my niece for her sixteenth birthday. I dislike giving money in an envelope and always try to find a unique way to present it. I also got her some cute Smashbox lippies. These are a limited edition and are at Sephora for just $29.00(that's a fantastic deal). My niece is just starting to wear makeup and I know that she will have fun with these. Heck, I know I would have fun with these too!



I hope you are doing well and enjoying the holiday season. Take care!

Aloha!

What a wonderful bouquet, I'm sure it will be treasured for many years - though minus its leaves I expect! Best wishes for a very happy and safe Christmas

Lettie -
That bouquet is cute as can be. You are such a generous auntie! I bet she will love the lip gloss too.

What a great idea to give money! I'd hate to pull the leaves off--unless my favorite aunt replaced them! lol

Love the lip glosses, too!

Aloha! The money bouquet is a beautiful way to give money!!! I love your little tree. Like you I like to change the decor of my tree each year. This year it has been red and orange. I saw a tree in Ikea with these decorations and knew I just had to buy some :)) Last year it was lilac and silver.
I wish you all the best for 2009, Elly
