Another blue sky day in Northern California:) So glad the smoke has lifted for the most part. Today's post I am sharing some more special things I did for my sister-in-laws shower this past weekend. I made her shower favors using a stamp that I first saw on Katie's blog... thanks Katie:) They are from Clear Dollar Stamps and are just perfect for what I wanted to do. The set is called Too Sweet. I used Avery labels and stamped two of the label designs with orange and green inks and then in the middle stamped "It's a girl" in the area provided. Then wrapped these labels around yummy Hershey nuggets. I placed four nuggets in 4X6 baggies, 50 of them! For the top part of the favor I used my Cricut machine and my Accent Essentials cartridge to cut out ovals and scalloped circles. I printed the sentiment out on my computer. I folded the ovals in half, stapled them to the bag and popped up the scalloped circles and voila party favors:)
So for all of you that can bake and decorate yummy treats I was always wanting to give it a try so I did! I made a monkey cake using a Wilton cake mold... cheating a little:) But I decorated the whole thing myself, little stars, leaves, everything:) And I loved the way it turned out. It took me about 5 hours but was worth it! Man my hand hurt afterwards though, I give cake decorators a lot of credit, WOW! What do you think, you like?
