polka dot pocket organizer and more

This is the package I put together for Fran for Lori's Polka Dot Swap. Fran likes the colors brown and orange, so I themed the package around those colors:
I made Fran a pocket organizer. See other pocket organizers I've made here.I found that brown polka dot fabric at my local fabric store- perfect for this project.
I put together a bundle of ephemera for Fran:
I also sent Fran these trims on a vintage Bingo card:I sent Fran a jar full of orange and brown buttons:I also sent Fran her favorite treat: Resse's peanut butter cups.

Fran mentioned that she likes coffee stained tags, so I sent her some of Blanca's (my favorite): Because Fran likes coffee stained tags, I sent her a distressing kit inspired by the petite inspiration boxes I've been making lately. When I get obsessed, I get obsessed. In the kit I included several pieces for Fran to distress: tags in a variety of sizes, mini envelopes, ribbon, and reinforcements:
