Tonight is the birthday party for the twins next door who are turning 4. Instead of spending a bunch of money, I looked through my fabric and came up with this..

Its similar to the skirt I made here, but less involved. Its also reversible. The other side is pink orange yellow and green plaid.
I made a little purse for each of them with some scraps.
I found some boxes from the dollar store that came in a Christmas package, that were green with little white polka dots. I wrapped a brown satin ribbon around the top of the box and then added one of these flowers. This is how it turned out.
Because I already have so much money invested in all my crafting/sewing supplies, it didn’t cost me anything to make the skirts or wrap them.

    Seriously? Who the heck are you? Between your crafts and Big Binder’s canning/cooking—I got nothin.

    Great present and I’m sure they were a hit. I also love how you wrapped the present. Thanks for all 3 ideas.
