You can always make a fun and cute gift (of a well deserved gift for yourself) with materials you have at hand or something really inexpensive.
Aiden doesnt really eat baby food anymore but we have some left and I use to save ALL of these cute little sturdy Gerber stage food containers.
I gave some to a SU demo for her to use, to my grandma, to my mom, to my aunt, and many more people and yet I still find TONS in my scrap room.
Where is this post going you may ask? At Blackleaf Studios the challenge for this time is to make anything but a card and I wanted to use to adorable tea pots.
So I took this (of course this isnt the same one I used..mine was all nice and clean ;) )
And transformed it into this....an adorable favorite tea holder. I will probably give this to my friend who just got a job in an office setting....so she can store her favorite teas at her dest :)
Whats ever better.........all the paper were scraps I had left over for a project I cant wait to show you that I am part off!!!
The paper is My Minds Eye and I got it from Hobby Lobby (3 papers total) and I used copics to color the tea pot, popdots, mini tag, and just a black pen and SU elegant Eggplant cardstock.
It really did not take alot of time at all and yet it looks like I did LOL
So if you have any time and have some Blackleaf projects you should try this challenge and link your project HERE. I know myself and the rest of the DT would love to see what you can do!
Okay well I am off to fix Mr. Aiden and myself some lunch..we got up a little early and were going to eat lunch a little early :)
