A colleague commissioned a trinket box as a gift for her friend’s 40th birthday. The friend in question is crazy about Mills & Boon (apparently it’s her guilty pleasure), so I created a trinket box that looks like a Mills & Boon novel. The synopsis on the back of the ‘book’ features the name of the birthday girl as the heroine of the piece, and her husband as the romantic interest.
My colleague bought some jewellery to place in the box, and presented it to her at the birthday party. Apparently she almost wet her pants laughing! Job well done I think!
