A Keepsake? Found in my packaging.

My friend, Meredith, is migrating to Australia. See what I have created for her as a farewell gift.

Just so that she will remember me, I have attached my business card with the SwirlinWhirl necklace I made her. Business cards are usually misplaced and forgotten. Just so that this will not happen to mine, I have made it into a bookmaker. Meredith has lots of books written by Anthony Robbins and it will come in handy.

Meredith travels a lot, so I am not going to give it to her in a box as it will be too big and cumbersome to pack in her luggage. Also, the white paddings in custom made jewellery boxes turn yellow with time. This lovely pouch is a better option. If Meredith decided to keep my creation in her own jewellery box, she can keep this pouch as a potpourri holder.

I just have to drape the necklace over my card to keep it in place.

I like it that she can see what is in the see through pouch. No rummaging through boxes to find the piece she wants to wear. I am also happy that my choice in packaging this gift will not result in any unnecessary waste.

Have a safe trip Meredith. May all things best follow you and your family wherever you may be.

very nice... lately i'm also into using material found at home for packaging... reduce house's rubbish for better usage.

You may even be able to start a flea market with this year end spring cleaning now that you know what to look out for to create.
