To My Daughter With LOVE - Handmade altered journal and gift boxes

Photos of the handmade Altered Journal I made for my daughter's birthday. 

These are photos of the matching set of altered paper gift boxes I made to match her journal.  I filled each with a special gift for her birthday.

I wanted to make her something special.  Something I created with her in mind.  I used vintage papers, ephemera, sheet music, vintage lace and old buttons.  I added paper roses, hand dyed fibers, ribbon, faux pearls, glitter and a little birds nest with tiny eggs.  Tooooooo cute!  I finished by hand stamping a few words and bird images here and there.  I thought they made a lovely gift.

I hope she loved them as much as I loved making them for her.
I love you.... sis.   MOM
