I had made a small gift for each of them using the new candy wrapper die and plenty of bling:
The square buckle was for one lady who doesn't eat chocolate or sweets, so I could tell which one was hers. These were so fast and easy to make, I think there may be some on our Christmas table this year.
We also do a Secret Santa gift and I bought some gorgeous bath confetti that looks like rosebuds - you break the rose petals apart and sprinkle them in your bath, where they melt to make you smell like roses. How lovely would it be to take a bath in rose petals? Mmmmmmmmmm! But the packaging they came in was pretty basic, so I fancied it up a notch.
Here's the rose petal confetti:
I punched out a lacy border using the lace ribbon border punch, threaded some fine ribbon through and added some pearls for a special touch.
Then on the front I put a gorgeous big satin bow held with a pearl brad.
It was, as always, a fun and enjoyable night and I once again reflected on how lucky I am to have such lovely ladies come to my classes and make it such a pleasure to teach something I love to do. I already can't wait until next year's classes begin!
Thanks for stopping by.
