Jelly Roll Towel Cakes

I've been trying to come up with favor ideas for my sister's bridal shower. I believe this is the winner! This is a crude mock-up, but you get the idea. I'll post pics of the final product when I actually start mass-producing these!
Each shower guest will get a "cake" that includes 2 washcloths and I'll be pairing it with a hand soap dispenser (shown in previous posts) that I'll customize for each guest. I'll wrap it all up in a clear cello-bag and tie it all together with a coordinating ribbon.

What do you think?!?!? Don't you just want to eat it?

Birthday Basket

My cousin turned 11 years old last week and I thought I'd put together a "tween" basket for her birthday party. The strawberry theme started with the strawberry flavored lip gloss and it took off from there.
I wanted to include some strawberry gum, but of course it had to be "pretty"! So, I made a slider for the gum pack.

Then I wanted to make a skinny notepad to go along with the green glitter spiral pad I purchased.

Then I wanted to dress-up some fun pencils I bought. So I made a pencil sleeve for them. This helps coordinate all of the items when everything is placed in the basket.

Here are the hand-made, altered items that I included along with some fruit-scented shower gel, lotion, a scrubbie, lip gloss, glitter notepads...

And this was the gift tag that I tied to the box.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!
What a perfect occasion to pull out the Flower Pot Pocket Card! I wanted to pair the card with a matching gift bag, so I added a few embellishments to a white kraft bag and voila - a personalized gift perfect for Mom!
