The kit includes:
a magnifying glass
clue notebook with a pen
a mini flashlight
fingerprinting forms and an ink pad
a crocheted sleuth hat
I took a plain black magnifying glass from JoAnn and gave it a makeover with rhinestones and duct tape.
For the notebook I used a composition book and created my own cover. I glued the paper with spray glue and covered the spine with the same duct tape that I used on the magnifying glass. I also covered the flashlight with the same duct tape to tie it all together.
Every detective needs a badge to flash. After she signs it and adds her fingerprint we will laminate it to give it a super-professional look.
I googled "fingerprint forms" and found a great printout on The University of Arizona website. I threw in a dollar ink pad from Michael's.
My search for pink non-character walkie talkies was unsuccessful, but I did find some purple walkie talkies for only $6.99 at Ross Dress for Less. With a little bling I don't think she'll mind that they aren't pink. I also threw in a few ziplock baggies for "evidence bags"
Finally, a sleuth hat. I crocheted a Sherlock Holmes cap using pink and brown yarn to give it tweed look.
|Dax was my model and liked it so much that I am making him his own sleuth hat.|
I put it all together in a cute storage box from Michael's with a cover that says "Samantha's Super Sleuth Kit".
I can't wait to see Samantha's face when she opens this on her birthday
Linking up to THESE great parties.
