Back again!!

I hope you all are ready for some MORE project ideas!! Stop by see what Silke Ledlow has to share today!!! I’m sure you will be BLOWN AWAY!

I have a BOY project! After-all, I DO have a son and he goes to a lot of parties. He always wants to give the same thing HE would love to receive-a gift card to the game store. Yes, he IS obsessed with video games, and YES we do have to limit them. That being said, now that he knows how to read it’s great that most of the games do require that so I don’t feel AS guilty sometimes.

OK enough of that, let me finally share some boy themed gift idea.

What would you say to bringing this combo to the next party?!


This super cute (and masculine/boyish) bag was made using the NEW! Tote-All Package and the NEW! Money Well Spent set.

Today I wanted to show you that not everything HAS to be girly!


As it says in the description of the Tote-All Package: Sometimes you just need a great gift bag! Even if you aren’t giving a large gift you can still package it up in a UBER * CUTE bag right?

I resized the Tote-All Package to be 65%. I didn’t use the pocket, OR the cute lid, and it is STILL amazing!!


I tied the tag onto my ribbon handle. I stamped the controller image onto a acrylic tag with black StazOn. I then used a singlo gel pen for my buttons. I think its a super easy and super cute touch.

So for my gift set I used the NEW! Pretty Printables digital paper in Shopping Shirley’s: Ganache Sprinkles & Taylor’s Teeth Ganache Sprinkles!


I used a lightweight special “flyer-scrapbook-photo” paper (I get mine cheap at Target!)to keep down the bulk on my project! Just another PLUS to printing your OWN paper 😀 You can choose the paper color (I could have printed on a pale blue cardstock), weight, size, and scale you print with! No waste, and ENDLESS use of the pattern. I had NO worries about running out of my pattern! I can just print more 😀 That is more cost effective because I don’t WASTE my $ on a pattern I love, but am afraid to use for fear of running out of it forever, fear I won’t have enough for my project, or it NOT being in stock/made available again.


I love that we have various patterned paper, in coordinating colors, so mixing and matching is SO EASY!

I also love that in the Shopping Shirley’s Collection you receive the game controller and general shopping themed papers the color collection of your choice, so there is much versatility!!


You can see the dimension I got my cutting out the controller. I added bling to the buttons for some added “star gamer” quality! NO BOW on this project per strict orders of Noah! LOL!

The little strip of cardstock going around the tin was done using the game controller patterned from the Shopping Shirley’s: Ganache Sprinkles. I did the same thing on my gift tote.


I think it is so simple but totally adds to the WOW of this SIMPLE design. You could whip up a variety of gift sets like this for ALL the holidays. OR to keep on hand when you don’t have time to run out for a gift!

See how perfectly my gift card fits in there


Creating this little box is just that little bit of an extra touch that says you care. As I’ve said before I just LOVE coordinating items, the more the better, and seeing the tin perfectly tucked inside just makes me smile!
