I am thinking about the holiday season already....Neighbourhood gifts are a tradition and a lot of fun for the kids to deliver and receive. Traditionally I make some sort of ornament. This year I am going with white and soft pink so it can be displayed during Valentines and Spring (!?!) too. These would also make great shower, birthday or wedding treat/favor cups as well.
- Peat moss cups (mine are 1.5" at base and 2" high) from Home Depot
- Acrylic paint and paintbrush
- Crepe paper strip (1.5" x 36")
- Tinsel pipe-cleaners
- Bakers twine
- Fine cut paper shred
- Clothes pegs
- Glue Gun
I am just going to wrap in a cellophane bag with a pink cardstock base and attatch a simple gift tag with some pink seam binding and deliver!

How gorgeous are these paper embellishments from here? I would love to decorate some of my kraft gift packages with any or all of these goodies or make a lovely garland with those butterflies!! These yellow and light green hues are fantastic - they are also available in blue, peach, orange and red too!
