Erica this is too funny!!! I also have a BIG little brother (16 months younger) who wants me to create something for his girlfriend so this has gotten the wheels in my brain going. I LOVE covering old boxes or even new ones that I get at the craft store. Garage Sale season is upon us and this has given me something new things to be looking for. I'm looking forward to your tutorial on the felt flowers. They are too cute!!!

What a darling creation and gift! I love it!!

Well you *are* an artist. :) Erika I love that you made these gifts for your brother's girlfriend. I think it is so neat that your brother asked you to help him. I love how the Flours turned out. You did such a beautiful job in making them. Is everyone in yur family gifted with talent?

Thank you for sharing your project and the photos. They came out great too.


Maria H.

What an incredible idea! Kudo's to your brother for thinking outside the box, and also to you for making it look so awesome! I wish I had a fraction of your talent! Great work!

Donna B

this is so UNIQUE & CLEVER, love your brother's idea and your execution of it is SUPREME (ha, never used that as an adjective when it came to a project before-I never saw that movie, how come? I totally love Maggie & Will too!) must rent it now! TFS and look forward to the felt flowr tutorial!


What a sweet sister you are! This was so cute and clever!!!

What a wonderful way to dress up the gift! I love the felt flowers.


Erika, you most definitely are an artist! This is such a cute idea! Can't wait to see how you made those flowers!

Erika, That is an absolutely ingenious idea that the 2 of you put together. I love the outcome, they are beautiful! Great gift idea, too!

To Sterling - If you'd taken the time to read the entire post that I wrote up, you'd see that I referenced the movie, "Stranger than Fiction," and explained where the idea came from. Next time you want to leave a snarky comment, do yourself a favor and don't skim.
