This was my first time making friendship pages. They are 6 x 6" double sided (side by side) pages (so a total of 4 pages).
The challenge for the friendship pages being the month of OCTOBER was to incorporate pink for the theme BREAST CANCER AWARENESS month. So the pages had to be pink & support the cause in some way by making a purchase of ribbon or something that can be incorporated into the pages.
I USED SOFT PINK COLORED & PATTERNED PAPERS THAT REFLECTED THE COLORS USED IN THE
THINK PINK CAMPAIGN
FOR THE FIRST TWO SIDE BY SIDE PAGES.
My partner lives in IRELAND so I asked her if there is anything she would like me to add to her package - anything she had a hard time finding over there. Her favorite colors I found out was purple & red & she likes bling.
Instead of purchasing ribbon I purchased a cotton braided bracelet for the cause & turned it into a pull out page with a surprise (the bracelet in her favorite colors purple & red - the bracelet was a cancer awareness campain item I found @ a local shop in the mall) I also included some BLING & tucked it into the bracelet. Looks like I forgot to take a pic of the bracelet. I added small packs of purple rhinestones & some red rhinestone flowers in two sizes. One of the floweres in probably 1 1/2" in diameter so that's some pretty good bling. I also added extra paper pages etc in red & purple for her taste.
I stamped off a bunch of fairies & other Irish themed stamps I have so she can use them in her cards. Just forgot to take a picture of that too!
I chose to included an extra little goodie in her friendship pages that was a project that I posted about previously HERE It's a large boc of PINK TIC TACS that I made a little cover for. I made a similar one using the smaller regular size TIC TACS @ a CHRISTMAS Craft Workshop I attended last year.
