  2. So super cute and easy! I love the Baker's Twine wrapped around the little paper clips. You could put just about anything in there. I think I'll start gathering supplies to make a few. Thanks for the great idea!

  3. When I go to download the happy birthday tag, Chrome tags it as appearing malicious. Never even seen that warning before. Weird.

  4. I would love to download this - so cute ... but my computer says the download is malicious and won't even give me the option to download. Any thoughts?

  42. I LOVE this! I used it for a friend who I just couldn't think of a gift for and she love it too. I like that it shares a little piece of me with my friend. I would like to use this for a group gift and I'm wondering if there is a way to change "my" to "our." Thanks so much for sharing!
