It is time for our monthly Pumpkin Spice blog hop! The theme for the hop and our new weekly Pumpkin Spice challenge is HEARTS!
With this theme in mind, I had some fun creating some fun gifts for my daughter for Valentine’s Day.
The first item is a bucket filled with goodies from the dollar section at Target. I used Bazzill Basics card stock, Crate Paper Paper Hearts DP, Twinery baker’s twine, and some miscellaneous odds and ends and stickers to spiff up this plan bucket for Valentine’s day.
I bought bubble bath, lip balm, hand sanitizer and pencils to put in the bucket. I couldn’t leave the pencils as they were so I opened them up and decorated them with some fringy fleece flowers and hearts cut from the Crate Paper Paper Hearts DP. Of course I had to add some little twine bows too.
I also have a stash of these empty jars from Penzey’s Spices. For some reason I can never throw them out but this is the first time I have actually used them for a craft project.
After filling the clean jar with M&M’s, I decorated it. Again I used I used Bazzill Basics card stock, Crate Paper Paper Hearts DP, Twinery baker’s twine, ribbon, and some miscellaneous odds and ends. I also had to use this sweet stamp, Love You from Mulberry Woods, because my daughter just loves this image. The first time she saw it she said it was just like “you and me”.
Of course I couldn’t leave the lid plain.
