shaker box...

Hi ya friends...
I hope you had a wonderful Easter!! It was 85 degrees here and just a glorious day!!! Ashley and I had some time to kill before all the guys got home from church, so we took some photos (she is such a good sport!). Then we chowed down on a yummy ham dinner, went for a walk, and had dessert, we never got around to coloring our eggs (too tired), oh well, no biggie!

Even though my kids are grown...I still do Easter baskets, but this year I decided I was not going to include candy in their Easter baskets (Josh doesn't really eat it, and Ashley and I got a ton from we are doing WW), so I just got them all a gift card to a place they like to shop. I had planned out that I was going to make these cute shaker boxes and put their gift cards in there. I printed off the pattern and made one on Friday evening...(aren't they cute??)

they are pretty time consuming and since I would be putting these together on Saturday evening, decided to take another route, (sometimes it is good to K.I.S.S. ~Keep It Simple Silly~my paraphrase). I found these cute gift card tins at Michael's (right next to the register). I was happy with the end result!!
