Hi Everyone! We are alternating between rain and sun here, but at least it has cooled off a bit with a nice breeze. Perfect weather for crafting inside since it is too wet outside.
While shopping for a Bridal Shower present Monday, I was amazed to find that a lot of the typical kitchen items that one might purchase no longer come in boxes. Like those wonderful baking dishes with glass lids--you know, the ones where the name is synonymous with the product. Really? Put one of those in a bag & they will likely come right through! Other hard to wrap items...pizza stones, fruit/bread baskets, mixing bowls. Well, the item I purchased did not come boxed either, but the store gave me a generous size bag that it would fit in. Solid white...boring! So yesterday, I browsed Pinterest and came up with this idea.
It may be hard to tell because of the glare from the flash, but I used some of that pretty fabric gifted to me by Valerie for the umbrella. I made some layered flowers using scissors that cut with fancy edges and topped each one off with a button. Since the girl getting married is a teacher, I themed the buttons to match: pencil, ruler, apple. It seemed to need a little something, so I added the apple with the little chalkboard that says "Bride To Be".
I like the bag much better now!
