for this this little one.
That’s better, the book style is just right.
What I really love about this box is that a drawer is underneath, which is suitable for tiny treasures. The outside will be covered with pretty paper and the inside with silk.

The top matchbox will hold a tiny token, the second matchbox with hold a Christmas wish.
Each double tag is made using 4 dyed tags. I glued two tags together for strength for the top tag and used a second tag to cover the raw edges of the lace on the back of the bottom tag. I also removed the inside paper reinforcements around the holes so that the tags will glue together flatter...

The party table was set in lime green, Emmalyn’s favorite color. Instead of name cards, paper Hermes Kelly purses were placed at each seat; I found them on the Hermes website during the summer. Inside the purses, I tucked beaded bracelets and flip-flop rings.

After pizza and the opening of birthday gifts, we made fashion crafts.
We had two tables with different accessories to make.
Table 1 had Paris Cowgirl bags, I was so busy I did not have time to snap a picture of these, they came out so cute.
The bags were made from orange, hot pink, turquoise blue and lime green bandanas.
We used two colors of bandanas for each bag.
Directions here ...
I printed out tags with the girls names on them so that the bags wouldn't get mixed up...
The dyed in coffee and vanilla tags came from magic moonlight studio. The girls had fun smelling these tags... they were a big hit..... guessing what the tags were dyed in became a game ......
On Table 2, we had Feather Head Piece, the girls loved doing this craft, we showed them this you tube video first.
All the guests looked so cute with these feathered barrettes in their hair. They decided to wear them to school on Monday. Every girl in the fifth grade of this school looked like they spent the weekend in Paris.
The big hug and thank you
that the grandmother got....
In the end, what it equaled to was a priceless smile on my granddaughter's face…
P.S.... one of the girls asked if she could adopt me as her grandmother....she said it was the best party ever...
Happy Ten Emmalyn,
Wishing you a magical year….
