More Starbucks Jars

Happy New Years Eve~
Sharing the other set of Starbucks jars I made as Christmas gifts for my nieces/nephews/godchildren.  All of them have Jaded Blossom stamps and I'm posting them so I can enter them in the Jaded Blossom's Create Anything December challenge that ends tonight at 11:59 PST.   The tags were stamped with some of the stamps from their Christmas Poop and Snowman Poop stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Gift Idea - Recycled Starbucks Frappuccino Bottle

Hello Crafters,
For my first posted project on my blog I would like to share the Christmas presents I made for my nieces/nephews/godchildren this year.   They are all older now and so they get the "boring" cash, but I can't just give them their "boring" cash in a envelope.  I have to come up with a fun and creative way to give it to them and every year they wonder what auntie it going to do.   
This year I decided to hide the money by candy in a recycled Starbucks Frappuccino bottle.  I used the cute reindeer from KaDoodle Bug Designs Deck the Halls file to decorate the bottle.  

Filled the bottle 2/3 of the way with M&M's or Milk Duds and then took a roll of money placed in a plastic treat bag in the center so the candy surrounded the money and couldn't see it.  

I stamped some of the tags with one of the fun sayings from the Jaded Blossom's Reindeer Poop Stamp set and tied it to the bottles with the Milk Duds. For the bottles with the red M&M's I typed a poem I found on Pinterest and did a print and cut tag.
Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to my new Blog

Hello there,
I've been sharing my projects on a Facebook Page I created,, but in some instances it has it's limitations such as participating in some challenges.  So I decided it's time to try and have a blog to share my creations and hopefully give inspiration to other crafters.

I work outside the home so I won't be able to post everyday but I will share as frequently as I can.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you follow me to receive alerts when I post.
