Craft Kits for 2 special girls

ETA: These gifts were from 2 kids, my son and my neice, so that's why there is so much stuff in each kit.
My good friend's daughters' combined birthday party is tomorrow. Morgan is 7 and Madison is10. When I asked what they would like she said "they really like to color and want craft stuff", I decided to make them each a craft kit.
I found the totes at JoAnn's on clearance for $4.50. I got them each 1 wood stamp and a little set of clear stamps and blocks, some punches, stickers, coloroed pencils and markers.
I made letters with the Cricut to personalize the totes.
I die cut each girl 10 panels and stamped them with images they can color. Each one will also get a set of 8 cards with envelopes and a glue stick. They can glue the panels to the card fronts and have a card to send off. I also put in some 6x6 pp for using the punches. Each girl has a small baggie with custom return address labels with just first names and an image that reminds me of them.
This is why I was so glad to have found that post on PTI about the marker sale last Tuesday, and why I waited 30 minutes for the staff at Staples to figure out the coupon code.
Looking forward to the party tomorrow.
