Bar of Soap for the New Year!


This year, I decided to skip making New Years cards and go right on for some fun favors for the children. I will be at my sister place for New Year's Day. Hanging with the family , have dinners, and just going to stay up until midnight. Well... let just hope I didn't fall asleep. LOL  Anyhoo, I had put some fun treats for my little nephews and my girls. Come and see:



Bar of soaps! Especially with all those cute adorable characters! So fun. The kids will absolutely love it! The best part is, the bars of soap is only  fifth cent each!!!! What a deal!!! Love after Christmas sale! You get everything 50 percentage off and you can find items that doesn't have Christmas theme . So that just perfect to make the extra gifts like New Year and even Valentine, too. :)


Back to the bar of soaps, Why Bar of soap make a fun  favors for children on New Year's Day, just incase if you are wander.


You can tell the little one, "To WASH  AND SCRUB AWAY 2012 AND LOOK, CLEAN, FRESH, AND FEEL BRAND NEW  FOR THE NEW YEAR OF 2013!!!!" :)

Get it? Wash AWAY the "old years" and feel brand new for the "new year?" Cute, right? 


You can also make a body soap basket for grown up one too for the New Year gifts, instead of bottle of  Champagne, if that what you prefer. ;)


Lastly for a touch up on these favors, just topped it off with a cute little tags using label collections, added any stamps that you prefer. I went with the new sneak peek, " Oh Whale" stamp set. My favorite from the NEW spring catty. :) Just love that whale and beside it goes perfectly with the favors. ;)

Sneak Peek: Flower Trims Headband


Hello, today I would like to share with you my first sewing project. A Pretty flower trim headband.
This pretty flower trim won't be available until January 3, but we as a demonstrator get to play with out pre order first. That is the best part about being Stampin Up demonstrator  So today, is another sneak peek of the pretty flower trim ribbon. I love this flower trims, its so delicate and very girly. Since holiday is just around the corner and I need something quick for my little girl to wear. I decide to turned this pretty flowers trim into a girly headband. Come and see:


What do you think? I didn't used the sewing machine and decided to hand sewing this darling little flower ribbon onto a thine elastic band. I know it's a little time consuming to sew by hand, but if you were using the sewing machine you can see the stitched running through the flowers. And that won't look pretty. So, lastly with a cute little touch up, I added a cute pearls in the center petal of the flowers. Can you see it? Isn't it very sweet? You can find all of those supplies at Joann fabric and craft store.


Here is my little model who is trying on the pretty headband. Isn't she so precious? I love that little girl!!! Sorry about the picture, its very hard to let the little one to sit still when trying to take her picture.
Lol!


And here is an up closed of the shot. I love how its turned out. Very cute. Perfect to wear this cute flower headband for every occasion and especially, meeting the family for this coming  holiday!

Fun Hot CoCo Treats


Here are the treats! They were a MESS!!! Especially trying to filled in those coco and marshmallow in the little small 1 x 8 cellophane treat bags.  But in the end, it turned out so cute!
They were giving to all the lovely staffs at CinCin school. A little something for the holiday.


Who doesn't love coco? Its a great drink for the holiday and wonderful for gifts and treats! My kids love coco and so are my little nephews. I did had the kids tested the coco in those treats bags. One of them suggestion, its better to give the staffs two package of the treats so that way they can make a nice full coco drinks. So I listen to them and make extra more, lol :) 


I also make a cute topper for those coco treats. I  punched out the circle, applied the cute little mugs from scentsational season, which it goes perfectly well with the theme- Hot Coco. I also used my itty banner framelits and then stamped the word, "Just for you" from Perfectly Preserved stamp. And also added some shiny rhinestone onto
 the mugs. 


Here is the back side of the coco tag. I used the little cute snowflake from snow flurry for a little touch up of the tags. Love that die! And there you have it! A fun yummy treats! Even though its a bit messy, but its all worthy! I think I'm going to make more and put some in the kids stocking. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Chan
