Halloween Favors

These are some Halloween treats that I made for the girls classes. I put M&M's in them. I just used cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. And then made them into a tube. Then you squeeze the ends the opposite way. Really easy. I stamped on them before folding them using clear stamps. Love those! The spider and web was my favorite!

Birthday Invites & Gift

These are birthday party invites for Milaya's party. They are little purses that open up with the info inside.

I made these cupcakes for her class at school. I have been seeing tons of these "cupcake creations" where you make a design with them and frost it all together. This one was hard to frost together so I had to do some by themselves and then put them in the shape. There was pink for the girls and plenty of green for the boys in her class. They thought it was cool. Am I the coolest Mom or what!?

I decided that while I had the portable canner from church I would put Milaya's gift in this can and seal it. That way there was NO peeking! I just added some paper and embellishments to it. I thought it turned out cute. Too bad the can-opener was being uncooperative and we had to throw it away. I was going to let her use it to store stuff in. Oh well. Maybe next time. I did save the paper and stuff on it to do a layout later.

Towel Bags

I know I haven't updated in a while, so there will be a few new posts on here. Hopefully I can get them all done!

These are just some bags that I made with the youth at my church. I just found these towels for $1 at Wal-Mart. Got some ribbon for the handles, and I had some old buttons that we put on them. I used cross stitch thread to whipstitch the sides closed and then hot glued the handles on it. We wanted to make it simple and quick for the girls to do. The first on I made. Milaya's is the brown one, she designed her buttons. And Hali's is the light blue one. She also "designed" her button flower.

The back of mine

The front of mine. I sewed a button on the front(in the middle) and put a thin piece of ribbon to loop over the button to keep it closed at the top. You just can't see that in the picture, sorry.
