Bell's Birthday Gifts

It was my sister-in-law (and team member) Bell's birthday yesterday. I've finally given her the gifts I made so now I can post pics of them!
This is a jar I bought a while ago which I thought would be great for putting rub-ons onto and filling with choccies or biscuits etc. Well, I had a bit of trouble at first, getting the rub-ons to actually stick! They are usually so easy to apply and stick to everything. I don't know what it was about this jar but it was giving me trouble. My wonderful team member Rel suggested I give it a rub over with my sanding block - hey presto! It worked!! The rub-ons were very easy to apply after that and the sanding block didn't damage the glass at all - no scratches or anything!

The card was really easy to do. It is a pre-cut and scored mini note card with matching envelope. I used rub-ons again, this time from the Bright Delights collection and added some felt flowers and brads over the top. I also put some rub-ons on the envelope to match.

I made a cute little post-it note holder for her as well. It was inspired by the one you see below.
This one was given to me by my lovely upline Liz at a meeting recently. It, in turn, was inspired by some swaps we received at Convention in May.
Unfortunately there are no details on the back of this swap. If you recognise this as your swap or someone you know, please let me know so I can give proper credit. Isn't this owl just so cute??

If you would like to learn how to make these little cuties, just contact me to book a free workshop.
