Gift set for customer

This is for a customer of mine. I've been doing a ton of stuff for her. I recently did a gift set similar for her older daughter's birthday. This gift set is for her younger daughter. I delivered them today. Here is the link to the part of my blog for how to make the flower that I did using the oval punches.

Here's the Tutorial on coaster gift boxes on splitcoaststampers. Mine is similer but I make mine into a pen/pencil holder. I do mine a little different. 1. I don't use modge podge I run my designer paper through my xyron and stick it to the coaster then I sand the edges smooth. 2. I only put two holes on each side of the coasters. 3. I use crystal effects from Stampin up to adhere it to the bottom. I do use the Crop a dial which they use too, It' is a must to make the holes in the chipboard. The last thing I do for making the box I cut two separate coasters half way down the center and then interlock them together and put them in the middle of the box. That will give you 4 spaces for the pens and pencils to be. I hope this will help you if you want to make one. Thanks for stopping by: Terry

Here's my recipe:
