What I have been doing...

* The stamp site for the large paperbags is My good friend Rachele (who is also one of my enablers.....bigtime) sent me the correct info. Thanks!!!!
I have been busy this week finishing up some of the gifts for my niece Becky's baby shower. These little shoes are her card, I made them like the flip flop card but used baby sandels instead. The front of the sandels have little blue & purple butterflies on them so I carried that out on the inside of the card.

This is a Sonic drink holder that I altered. First I "painted" it with the colored mod podge that I made using reinkers. I based the whole box to make it more sturdy. I then added paper & punched out flowers, added rhinestone flowers to the centers of the flowers, leaves punched from a Martha Stewart punch and lots of ribbon.

On the goodies inside I just made a band to go around the product and added flowers & ribbons.
I did use a jumbo wheel to roll some leaves onto tissue paper & stamped little pink flowers randomly on the leaves. I used the tissue to take up space so the bottles would not shift when I was carrying it.

This is a large lunch sack that I bought a long time ago at a place that I think is out of business. I tried to find the link but am unable to locate it. It was called but that leads to nowhere. Oh well I took the scallop circle(giga) punch to cut the scoop neck out. The sleeves are done by opening the fold on the side and folding it out straight, measuring down 2 inches & cutting just to the fold. You then tuck the bottom side back in and leave the sleeves out. I hope that made sense. I punched a circle out & glued it to the inside where I wanted my ribbon to go & using the double circle punch made an opening to tie my ribbon thru.
Well off to go get ready for the shower. Happy Saturday!
