Club Hostess Gift

DSCF7770

My stamp clubs meet this month, and I always like to give a little gift to my hostesses. I bought some Laughing Cow cheese, and when it was finished, I thought the little round container would make a fun recycled holder for some bits & bobs that I collect as I am creating. Above, I covered the sides with some Razzleberry Lemonade paper strips; and the top sports a scalloped circle of Melon Mambo, a ribbon flower and a tag:

I admit I need some practice on the ribbon flowers! The tag was stamped with a little butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly, and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Here’s a little peek at the goodies that I tucked inside. These are just punchouts, stamped items I didn’t use, bits of ribbon, etc., that I collect along the way – I hate to throw them away, so hopefully my hostesses can play with them!

This also qualifies for the Stampin’ Royalty Challenge #18- Anything But a Card, and the City Crafter Challenge, Terrific Tag!  I hope my hostess has fun with this and all her other goodies!

  8. Love the idea of the bits and pieces in the cute container. I always love "stuff" like that as I might not have the same paper, punches, etc. At the crop I went to last month, the hostess had a table with all kinds of paper, punches, punch outs, embellies we could use. Fun to look through the "stuff".
