Default Christmas gift #1

This is for a X-mas party with friends. We are doing a white elephant gift exchange.

The Pen is a Stark Pen Kit. I did a tube in casting with the Joker sticker wrapped on the tube. Squared the blank and inserted the plug for the back side of the pen, then put it back in my mold to cast the end. The box is cut out of 1/8" birch ply. I used fun foam sheets for the inserts.

That is awesome! I love everything involved. I suspect that will be a very well received gift.

Wow, that's really cool. It really doesn't match the definition of a white elephant gift. Someone is gonna get a great gift.

From Wiki (so it has to be accurate) A white elephant gift exchange, Yankee swap or Dirty Santa is a party game where amusing, impractical gifts are exchanged during festivities. Usually, the goal of a white elephant gift exchange is to entertain party-goers rather than to gain a genuinely valuable or highly sought-after item.

Your gift will entertain but it is valuable and may be sought after if your white elephant party allows steals.

Our gift exchanges has kind of evolved into a competition as to who can bring THE gift that everyone wants to steel! HA HA HA HA HA!
