Altered Frapp. bottles

Today I will be posting this cute little gift that I made for my co-workers in 2009. I had to make 8 of them, so this meant I had to drink alot of frappachino. LOL.

The first thing was to drink the contents of the bottles, then wash and dry the them really good. I made a pattern of the box to cover it. I used solid heavy cardstock for the box and assorted patterned pattern from both from Hobby Lobby for the rest of the box and the bottles. I used a stamp set and scollop punch from Stampin up. I filled the bottles with Powdered hot choc. mix, marshmellow, kisses and choc. covered peppermint sticks. The message on the side was the Snowman soup recipe. Contact me if you would like the recipe. Have a great day.

Bridal Shower Invitation

A friend in my church told me she was going to be hosting a bridal shower for a friend of hers and ask me if I could make her invitations. She needed the wedding colors which were eggplant and cream. I was a little nervous to do these, I wanted them to be perfect. Plus I needed to make 40. Well stampin up had the perfect colors, eggplant and cream. The ribbon I bought at Micheals and the vellum is from Hobby Lobby. Well as you can see they turn out rather cute and all liked them. Hope you had a great 4th.
