just for fun, I'm showing you a gift I'm giving my friend for her birthday today!
First, I made a card. Then I decided to recycle a bag to match the card. I did this by gluing paper over the shop name.
Perhaps some of you will recognize the lovely crochet cloths by Sarah of Magnolia Surprise and the tea bag graphics by Sher of Sher Hastings Designs. I downloaded the tea bags and printed them, adding a little red and blue color with chalks.
I found a footed milk glass bowl in the pattern my friend collects. I made some candy (recipe) which I packaged in a cellophane bag covered in white stars.
I'll give this to her tonight when our families meet up at the fireworks. I hope she loves it!
