So this year, I had Amanda in the swap. And since the gift is safely in her hands I can share it!
She's a Twilight fan(atic) so I thought it would be fun to make her gift themed as a psych up to the release of New Moon in theaters in November.
The gift bag & tag. I wrote I *heart* FORKS on a fork and hot glued it to the bag.
I printed the covers of the books out and hot glued them to some favor boxes I had. Amanda is also a big fan of candy so I filled each with a different kind of candy. The template for the bottle label can be found here. (I used Jones soda for this.)
My favorite thing was a cd that we (and by we, I mean Dave) burned for me using songs that Stephanie Meyer recommends for reading her books. I did the cover art for the cd while Dave found all of the songs in our massive cd collection and I think it turned out pretty dang cute!
I also added a red delicious apple and some other silly things to the gift bag. Happy Summer Amanda!! Hope you liked your silly gift.
