My sisters birthday today...

And these are a few of the things she'll find while working today! She works at the Winkler post office and delivers mail. So in her sorting cubicle is the banner and the bigger boxes. Along her route she'll find all kinds of different treat boxes (that fit into the return mail slot) as well as some cotton balls. (she has a small phobia about touching cotton. hehehehe)
I didn't post all the little projects I made for her. There was just too many, I think 35 in total. Ya, I sacrificed much of my scrapping time for you Eva!!

The banner I made by cutting pices of chipboard and gluing on some pp and stamped Happy birthday. I put 2 eyelets on each piece to run the string through.
I attempted to make a mail box. Used the polished stone technique on the glossy paper. Not great, but oh well. This is a cute little purse. SU! used to sell the diecuts to make these so I had a pattern so to speak. I put some spools of ribbon in there. The other gable box has a scallop circle punched out of it for a window. Filled with kisses.
This is a 6 x 6 black piece of wood. (long story of why I had one left over) So I decided to decorate it for her scrapspace or workspace.
Altered altoid tin. Isn't that cute?? A mini suitcase. I added a note inside that says, For when you've had enough and want to pack it all in.

The polka dot purse is holding a box of nerds. The Rose Red striped box is a pack of gum. I covered a roll of peppermint lifesavers with pp and ribbon. The yellow box with flowers has a chocolate bar in it. A little birdhouse. A shot glass (which she won't be able to use for the next 7 months) that I covered with rubons. Au Chocolate take out box with a decorated peppermint patty inside. And 2 decorated peppermint pattie.

The first box is an explsion box. When she lifts the lid the base kind of explodes and the number 31 is written inside. The 'for you' box has a bag of gummies inside. And the Tempting Turquoise and pink box is a box of Hot Tamales.
I also altered some blocks for her with her favorite pics. Here are 2 different shots of the blocks. There are 12 pics in total.

So I'm thinking she'll have a rather long day finding all these things along the way. But hey, it's her birthday and we have to celebrate somehow.
So Eva,
HAPPY 31ST BIRTHDAY!!!! Hope you have a great day!
