I know it isn't anything really exciting, but I do think it turned out pretty cute. Of course, I wanted to stamp and do all sorts of paper crafting for this gift, but nothing seemed to work out right for me. I wanted to create a band of paper to put around the cup, but I didn't have any paper long enough, so that idea was scrapped (and I didn't want to have seams, etc.) so, I just decided to fill it and tie some yummy SU! ribbon on it and call it good or at least good enough!
The ribbons are pretty cute, aren't they? I originally thought I'd make this for a Mother's Day gift, but once I put it all together, I thought it was more appropriate for a "New Mother" pampering gift or a baby shower gift..especially with the frame!
Isn't this just the cutest thing ever? Mary found it while on our little shopping trip and told me I needed to get it! I'm sure glad she did! It was $1.00! I picked up a couple and now I'm thinking I need to send my sister to pick up a few more! I covered it with yummy SEI paper, Pee-Wees Kiwis (I spent what seemed like HOURS drooling over this paper deciding if I needed to get it or not...and I'm so glad I did, I just didn't get enough!) The whole line was so cute. The rub-ons are Heidi Grace, Day Dream Believer, and I'm not too sure why I didn't buy more of this stuff too! CUTE! CUTE! I used ModPodge to adhere the paper, seal in the rub-ons, glue on the buttons, and I even used a tiny dab under the ribbons to hold them in place; it worked wonderfully! I love that stuff! It is a mess to clean up....but it sure holds well! I just left the original picture insert inside the frame for now, but I did cut a piece of acetate to give a new photo more protection.
