Yummy Gift Set

Don't you just love it that when you can stamp, you can turn everyday mundane things into "rockin'" gifts? After I finished Patty's card, I decided I wanted to give her something a bit more special and something that her DH might also enjoy since he worked so hard on our props.

I had an empty can from some yummy almond not ever throw away a good container! Just the right size for some of these awesome chocolate chip cookies!
I used wide Scor-Tape to adhere a piece of (yes, I did it again!) Sabrina paper to the tin. Using 1/4" Scor-Tape I ran black satin ribbon around the top and bottom edges, and 1/8" Scor-Tape to run the pink grosgrain around the base. The ribbon on the top is actually applied to the rim of the lid.

I cut and embossed the label with my Rectangle Nestibilities after stamping and embossing with the new SU Hostess set. (LOVE it!) I used Sabrina button brads on 3 corners of the label. The lid was decorated first with the largest Nestie plain circle in SU black, then concentric Nestie scalloped circles in alternaing pink and black. I stamped and embossed the ENJOY border from the JustRiteStampers Baking Ensemble and cut just the border (no center) with circle Nestie. Those yummy flowers are Daisy Doodles that I picked up at Michael's with a 40% off coupon. :-) The same ribbons were square knotted on the bag. I'll tuck Patty's card in there too!

Stamps: SU
Paper: SU black, pretty in pink, Sabrina DP
