Just a little gift...

I thought that I'd share with you a little gift that I made my SIL for Christmas. When we were over at her house one day she mentioned that she wanted a cough drop but they were in the other room. She said, I have nothing to keep them in. Of course the idea bulb went off!! And she is always saving containers of all different sizes for me, so I thought that I'd decorate one for her.
All the paper used was from SU! and it's from the Bella Rose collection. I covered an old Crystal Light container. I added various flowers, brads & ribbon to dress it up. I cut the word "drops" with my Cricut Base Camp cartridge from Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette papers and hot glued on to the container.
I took my scalloped oval punches and punched some random scraps to add to the container for a little extra color. Not to mention to cover my seams. I always try to cover all the seams if possible. It looks a little better if you can do that.
On the lid I used my Scallop Circle punches and added a Prima and crystal brad to it. I had some baby pink rick rack that I added around the edge to dress that up a bit. And yes, she liked it, I was happy!
Well, the day is 1/2 over and I've only just begun. My clock is so off with hubby being home. I've still got him for another couple of weeks, which is fine. But everyday feels like a weekend day because he's home. And the dates, oh heck. I don't even know the dates anymore. Of course once I get back on track he'll go back to work.
I'm off. I'm going to try to get something created today ~ if I can stay off the computer long enough! And don't forget to stop back by to take a look at my sneak peeks!! They are so tempting!
Have a great weekend!
Hugs,
Joani
