For Our Monkey

When our niece turned two I knew that one of the gifts I wanted to give her was a little set of finger puppets - and this would be a gift to her from our 3 kids.  She loves puppets and soft little things, and when I saw January's PTI Release and Nichole's set of Finger Puppets I melted on the spot.  Had I not won that set, I would have bought it no matter what!

So I took the cues from Nichole and put this sweet little ensemble together, very much inspired by her design.

Here's the different pieces....  the very cute finger puppets cut out of felt in girly colors.  Sewn or glued together with Craft Glue (my french knots really need some work!)

The little gift box/purse that you can put the puppets's just the PTI stamp packaging with the top cut off.  

And here's the gift tag...  I love the little leaves and the felt flower :)  My kids chose the *party animal* for the tag.

And finally here is the card, I've added a felt border along the bottom and stamped happy birthday in white Craft ink.  

I so love making gifts where everything thing goes together in a theme.  It was really fun to make!  

So, I hope to catch up with many of you soon on your blogs...I've been so swamped this last week and right now with tons to do, including a sermon to write for preaching with my husband next Sunday!  But I hope to get caught up soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

What a FANTASTIC gift set, Christine! I love making a coordinating set to give as a gift, too. For one brief moment, all the pieces of chaos fit snugly together. :) Beautiful work!
