Hi friends! Sometimes you make something that is really quick, easy and cute. This is one of those times.
I don’t like to shop and I don’t want to give gifts that will collect dust either. Mostly, I’m lazy and giving the gift of cash, especially to older kids, goes over really well. See, most kids don’t have jobs and unlike a gift card it can be spent anywhere. Plus, I have to admit, I am a horrible gift giver, sometimes I get it right but mostly I am clueless but I can make cute stuff so I put my effort there:) Buy hey, if you are a steller gift giver you could whip up one of these tins to give your awesome gift in!
I just realized that now everyone knows that I don’t put that much effort in to the packaging either. Hmmm, I really need to rethink my blog topics. I am giving all of my secrets away. I guess it’s good that not many people I know in real life read my blog LOL! Hey, just because it is fun and easy doesn’t mean it’s not worthwhile and made with love. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Oval Tin (also available in round, square & heart shapes)
Chalk paint in white and teal
Stamps (Sweet Cupcake-Stampin Up)
Dye Ink (Memento, Stampin Up, Altenew)
1. Paint tin with chalk or acrylic paint, let dry.
2. Stamp cupcake and cut out.
3. Glue cupcake to lid of tin and glue pom-pom trim on the edges of the tin lid. Accent with sequins.
I want to thank Papermart for sponsoring this post, they have so many cute things for packaging gifts and goodies and you can’t beat the prices. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
