A little Love! I'm back, anyone out there??

Hi there and Happy New Year! If you are reading this, thanks for coming back. I am so sorry for not sharing over Christmas. I figured it is too late to show you pics of what I made for Christmas, but I did craft A LOT! I even had an order of 30 favors for a Christmas dinner!! Woohoo! That is huge for a little ole' crafter like myself :)

Now on to love! My parents are celebrating their 50th anniversary on March 4Th.
They will celebrating aboard the Paradise Carnival Cruise ship with 53 friends and family!
These are the party favors. Sorry the picture isn't clear enough to show the embossing on the white paper, then a thinner strip of paper with the word "love" all over it! Topped off with a black ribbon and a hanging tag that reads: Stan & Emily- 50Th Anniversary-March 4Th 2011.
These were then wrapped up in a clear cellophane bag and tied with a ribbon. I am really happy with them!
Now I need to make a matching guest autograph book, so all the guests can write them a little note to remember and treasure this very special occasion! Thanks Julia for telling me about these cute little critters at Target in the $1.00 bin!
I am showing you 2 ways you can complete them.
1. The pink bear is holding a Hershey bar wrapped in 6" X 5 1/2" piece of scrapbooking paper, tied with a ribbon. A hanging heart tag is added. Then finish it off by putting it inside a clear cellophane bag and tying it up with a ribbon! And there you have an adorable inexpensive and cute Valentines day gift! Cellophane bags are available at most craft stores and dress up anything!
The giraffe is holding a small handmade box filled with candy. He too will end up all dressed up in a cellophane bag!


  1. I'm still here Tina! Glad you had a nice holiday. Sounds as though you are staying very busy!! Glad to have something new on your blog. Both of those are very cute. Don't ya just love the valentine stuffys????? Hugs, J~

  2. You are so crafty! Going to go to Target tomorrow...hope they have those cuties here.
