Dec Blog Hop

This months H & M blog hop theme is wrap it up! So I decided to make a gift for my cousins. I know this is not the best pic but its large and was hard to photograph!LOL! I got this idea from the Pre-k. I bought a cookie sheet and used the Painters markers and wrote their name on it. The girls are BIG Tinkerbell fans so I used H & M's Fairy tales and stamped teh fairy silhouette in certainly celery like Tink. The cookie sheets are a great way to keep the mess minimized!LOL!




I found this basket at the Dollar tree and thought it would be perfect to hold the girls playdough in so I filled it will some leftover Easter ribbon shreds. I found some pastel colored playdough and I covered the playdough containers w/some dp from Paper studio. I stamped the butterfly from the Fairy tales set in barely banana, pretty in pink, and apricot appeal b/c they were the closet matched to the playdough colors. I used my scallop circle punch and 1 3/8" circle punch for the lids.

I found a 101 pc cookie cutter set at Walmart and thought they would be great to include in the gift basket. I pulled out all the alphabet cookie cutters for the girls set. It took two large acetate bags so I made a topper for one bag and a tag for the other bag. I also made the same tag for the gift bag. Now its time to start hoppin.....Check out what the other DT ladies created.
Have fun hoppin!!!!
