Travel Gift Idea

Since my husband and I "gifted" each other a Hawaiian vacation for our anniversary this year...I was inspired to created a fun way to present a travel gift.
Here is my gift idea...



I used a Silhouette file to make the airplane and added some SRM stickers to the plane...."relax" "unwind" and "dream".  I attached the plane to the tube by using a stick pin.  The top of the pin in threaded through the airplane base and then I pushed it through the lid of the tube.  I put some foam tape on the inside of the tube lid to anchor the pin.   The plane actually tilts back and forth :)  

I covered the bottom of the Mini tube with black vinyl that I die cut into building shapes using My Favorite Things Die-Namics Skyline Border die.  I added the "adventure" sticker along the tube and filled the tube with the travel information.  This concept would work well with concert tickets, amusement park tickets, etc.  Simply change out the topper to reflect what is inside :)
SRM products used:
Express Yourself Retirement #42005
Express Yourself Everyday Boy #42040
Mini tube

Thanks for stopping by!

You never cease to amaze me! Always such unique ideas! I love this. Tom and I were thinking about going to our 35th anniversary this year but we haven't made arrangements yet and now our son lost his job so we are kind of on the fence. But it's a gorgeous place to relax! Thanks for the inspiration!
