Beachy Gift Set

A little Beachy Gift Set.
It is always so hard to come up with summer birthday ideas.
Teens love gift cards but it is so impersonal.
So, how about decorating a little beach bucket and slip your gift card inside.
It gives the gift card a much more WOW factor, don't you think?

This little beach gal is by Crissy Armstrong - this is the last week for her design team call at Sundays with Crissy. Check it out - there are lots of lovely cards and projects.

The Creative Details:
