Sharing a project today :)
Ashley wanted to make some real cool gifts for her female co-workers.
She saw them at Chapters....Check out her blog to see them .
But we couldn't find the right type of bubble bath. So she changed her plans.
She is still bummed about the bubble bath project though.
So onto her second choice.
With the help of her mom ;) (yes that would be me)
We (I) made this.
Actually I only made one to make sure that they worked. I will get to the others tomorrow.
They are tea light candle containers :)
Here is the front, with the recipients initial.
Here is the inside.
Everything is made with paper.
I saw this idea on a blog.
The measurements were in centimeters.... Yes us Canadians do follow the metric system, but I still haven't completely converted, lol.
I blame it on wood working, lol.
The pocket on the left holds a tag to write or stamp a sentiment on.
The bottom and the top of the tea light box both open up, so the ribbon is only there so they don't open during transport :)
If I added a piece of acetate on the open area, I could add candy in there or something else yummy :)
I still have to make 3 more for her.
I also want to make a Christmas one as well :)
Ashley didn't want hers to have a Christmas theme.
Onto My Day:
Wayne is on holidays for the rest of the year. So today we did some running around and went Christmas shopping.
I am hoping to get the rest competed tomorrow :)
Then we can veg. and I can made some extra gifts for Christmas. I seem to do this every year.
When I think I have extra time, I made something for someone ;)
Went out to mail some out of town parcels. There was only 2 people in front of us...nice.
Looking forward to getting everything completed tomorrow ;)
Hope you had a creative Monday :)
