For the past few years, my sister-in-law has invited me to her house for Mother's Day, as well as her sister, husband's sister, daughter-in-law and her two granddaughters. We all usually bring a small gift for the other ladies. This is my gift to them this year:
Inside the tissue paper is a candle and candle holder:
This is the teacups without the candles inside:
Finished Teacup: approximately 4 1/4" across x 2 1/2" high
Materials (for each teacup):
Cardstock: Double-sided Patterned and White
Cricut Cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 Teacup, page 29 (Base, cut at 10")
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Happy Days "Happy Mother's Day!"
StazOn Jet Black Ink
Aunt Lydia's Crochet Thread
Candle and Candle Holder
I hope you can see that the tags are suppose to look like a the end of a teabag. I used hot glue to put the teacups together (to make it stronger) and I adhered the saucers to the bottom of the cups. The lace is to make it look a little more feminine. Each cup has a different scented candle. Don't you think the ladies will like them?
Now who doesn't like Blog Candy? Well first, Mary at CardzTV is giving away 2 sets of stamps (winner's choice). Don't forget to check it out.
