"Friend" Gift Set

I finished this gift set yesterday and am pretty happy with how it turned out. It was a project that I was commisioned to make for a friend. Not knowing the recipient, I wanted it to be neutral. So, what did I do? Went to my favorite papers from SEI- "Grandpa's Attic". The card I posted yesterday goes along with this thank you gift.
You may notice I try to distinguish the stamping jargon by making that a smaller print and labeling it "DETAILS, DETAILS". This is so you can pass over those details if you wish and not miss anything important in the post. Here we go.....

Details, details-
Acrylic Frame Calendar
uses Looks Like Spring argyle background on scalloped oval in Sahara Sand and Cranberry Crisp ink and
Rubber Stampin Fun sentiment in Noir Black Palette ink. HL satin ribbon is woven through small slot punch and tied in knot on side. I believe the polka dot brads are from The Paper Studio and blue flower is unknown.
Pencil Cup has a scalloped edge on bottom that was made using the slit punch and Julia's tutorial. Large Prima paper flower, smaller prima and same polka dot brad. There is also a wide polka dot satin ribbon wrapped around (Walmart).
RSVP Pen has a scrap of the SEI paper rolled up inside to match the desk set.
Memo Cube simply has Basic Black cardstock and SEI SP band scored to fit around with 2 corners rounded and tied with HL black satin ribbon.
Large Paper Clip Bookmark has Cuttlebugged chipboard and DP flowers layered on both sides and a MM star brad. Crystal Effects holds them together.
Candle is from Mike's $1 section and has a strip of SEI polka dot paper around the bottom, stitched black and white ribbon (The Paper Studio) around the lid (both use Tacky Tape) and the SEI paper on top. SU small and large oval punches (stamps from Noteworthy and Carte Postale) and Primas and a MM brad.

Have a great Wednesday!
