Pocket-size Birthday Gifts

Little birthday gifts
Sometimes it's hard to think of a good birthday gift for a long-distance friend -- something fun and personalized and, most importantly, easily sent through the mail. Anne and I have been friends for close to 19 years now (yowzers!). She lives in East Tennessee and I'm in Indianapolis, so for her recent birthday I wanted to make and send something special.
Anne's a kid at heart (even more so now that she has two little boys of her own), and so I thought she'd enjoy this dynamic duo. The pouch is around 4 inches and the lion around 2-3 inches (silly me, I forgot to measure them before I wrapped and mailed them). You might recognize the monkeys on the pouch from this post.
