So I made this box for her and put a gift card inside, along with some chocolates and a lip balm for super sunny days. Afterwards, she can use it to store paper clips and keep it to decorate her office desk.
It was so fun to personalize the stem with a gnome, a door, a window and grass. The gnome is layered, so his beard and moustache really look dimensional!
Of course, a single mushroom can get lonely, so I gave it a little friend. It's not big enough to put a gift card inside, but it's so sweet to see a mini-me on a desk, and it can hold items like paper clips. It's reduced 75% of the larger mushroom, but of course, when you have a cutter, you can ask it to make anything as small as you like.
What's a gift without a heartfelt message? When they peek under the roof, they'll see your writing there.
It's a good size and fits in your hand quite comfortably.
It took me quite a few tries to make this fun fungi, and my room was a forest of shrooms when I finally got the tabs just right. For me, it's a fevered quest that gets more frenzied the closer I get to knowing I'm almost there, but not quite.
