I wanted to share with you some handmade gifts I made for my friends. It was Tami's birthday and we always exchange little gifts to each other at the parties.
I love flowers,
so I decided to make a Stamped Flower Vase for the girls.
Stamping the word "flower" onto the vase,
they could use it for one rose or a bouquet of flowers in it.
I found some Jim Holtz metal plates at the craft store.
I stamped "Flower" onto some cut linen.
I torn a bigger piece of linen to go around the jar and just tied it
in a knot to secure it.
I found the jars at Walmart.
I hot glued the plaque to the linen and
then added different beads to it.

A fun project for a vase for all your Summer Flowers...
Another added little gift to go with the Sunflower theme was some
Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds I found at Trader Joe's.
I found small round boxes at the craft store
along with small yellow flowers.
I hot glued the flowers to the box.
Then added some Sunflower Seeds from our garden that we collected last year to the boxes to make it more personalized.
Then put it all together in a clear bag.
I stamped the tags with a Sunflower on them.

I experimented with stamping a tea towel with fabric ink.
Now, I want to try making more towels,
using fabric paint.
It was a fun weekend project.
