The perfect office gift! - created by Margaret Raburn

My sweet friend Margaret Raburn made me the most PERFECT gift ever!

My stamp studio is all decked out in pink and black and this gift was just perfect for my room!  Margaret told me she was standing in the check-out line at the office supply store and this caught her eye.  She had to laugh at herself because she had only a small thing to buy…until she spotted these little acrylic boxes filled with pretty office goodies.  She bought several of them for gifts.  Those darn check-out lines get us every time, don’t they?  Well, I’m glad they did because I just adore my pink and black clips!  It is just too cute for words! - created by Margaret Raburn

Margaret tied it up with a pretty Chalk Talk tag!  I love this stamp set!

Have you created something special from something you picked up in the check-out line?  Now, I don’t mean lining the bird cage with the National Enquirer…but a real project.  Share your ideas!  I would love to hear them!

Hope you’re having a terrific day!  Don’t forget to be AWESOME today!

    Hi Connie, who’s a lucky girl then? Looks a fab gift and a lovely friend too!
    I will have to look out for something similar in the Uk it really is an awesome gift idea.
    Whilst i’m typing this I just wanted to say I would have loved to have joined your “Stampin’Girls Gone Wild Online Club” but for obvious reasons being in the Uk would not work lol. 🙁 I am sure everyone will love it.

    Hi Connie,
    Kinda along the same line…Target had really cute office “stuff” all color coordinated. Paper clip, Bull Dog clips, rubber bands, push pins, post it notes, washi tape, etc. I purchased a jewelry case from Hobby lobby that has all the compartments. and I put all the “stuff” in all the compartments. Each teacher got a different color combo. I used DSP to decorated to top and sides of the box.

  4. Haha, Connie, you just HAD to tell them about my impulse shopping, didn’t you, lol!! You forgot to mention your PINK & Black polka dot fetish too, that’s why I just HAD to use the Melon Mambo Polka Dot ribbon (retired). Glad you like it! It’s always fun to give unexpected gifts!
