In my previous post, I listed four different DIY projects for the non-DIYer. Which is me, and maybe you too. These were practical and relatively easy DIY projects that any one could do in one afternoon. Hello, who has more time than that these days? Plus, with the great resource like Etsy, everything you need is a few clicks away.
So, one project, which I found quite fun was creating this bridesmaid gift. You can make this into a "Will you be my Bridesmaid?" gift, or a "Thank you for sticking with me through these nine+ months of planning and stress, #Iloveyou" gift. Or heck, maybe make two!
Let's start with the container, I wanted it to be on the smaller size and found this little guy at Michael's for half off. (They're like Hobby Lobby, with sales every other week). They were also having a great deal on photo boxes which would also work well!
Now the content... what do women like? Oh! Sweet things, pretty things and practical things! Here are the details:

Did I ever mention I am a super thrifty shopper too? I managed to get this gift and all of it's beautifully, hand curated goodies for less than $20.00. A-W-E-S-O-M-E. So hit up your local Target and Michael's Dollar section now!
