Birthday Ensemble for my SU upline

We had a surprise birthday party for my gf and upline, Jacque, this weekend. She was so surprised and it was a lot of fun. We also made a project too, wohoo!

She loves the colors: black, red and white. She also loves damask print things, so I wanted to incorporate that. Found this letter holder and created a bunch of note cards and flower pens to go inside. Then I wrapped a Sizzix Hello Kitty die in black and white polka dots. Also found a matching reusable shopping bag as my gift bag (sorry the pics came out so bad).



I also gave her two martini glasses with charms that had her monogram initial on it. I made the charms using shrink art and my heat gun.





It was really fun making this ensemble and I hope she liked it!

So cute Michelle! I know Jacque will love it. How do you make those heat shrink things with the heat gun? Just stamp, heat and done? I used to make them in a toaster oven but using the gun sure sounds easier/faster...is it?
