    Default Birthday present for a 11yr old girl

    A box made for an 11yr old girl's birthday.
    Made from recycled Jarrah floorboards so there is some imperfections but was very happy with the result.
    She wanted to have a Llama party so I obliged with a Llama on the lid which matched the Llama on the card my wife created.

    That's very cute. If the boards were from your house, it will have extra meaning for her when she grows up.

    Kind regards,

    It turned out very nice. Can't beat a bit of Jarrah to look a bit specky once some sort of finish is put on.
    Cheers,

    Warrick

    Nicely crafted box and I am sure the recipient will be thrilled but I have to ask. What is a Llama party? I just wish to know if I should be scheduling one any time soon.

    Regards

    I didn't think it was something special, just a Llama themed party, that is till I did a google search (Real Eye opener)
    Here is the card my wife made to go with the theme
