The first is just a candle I bought from Wal-Mart and spruced up a bit. I made a belly band for it using paper from My Minds Eye and black cardstock. The 12x12 sheet of decorative paper just barely fit. I didn't have any black 12x12 paper and really wanted the black trim, I don't know why other than that's just how I pictured it. Anyway, since it didn't quite fit I decided to make it look intentional by placing my flower there, sort of a frame for it. The flowers are from the Doodle This stamp set from SU. I love this set, the flourishes are great and I love the way these flowers layer. I added a jumbo eyelet and jewled brad to "pretty" it up.
These next gifts were what I came up with for the jars I have had sitting on my kitchen counter for weeks. I've just been filling them with candy and giving them to my SU hostessess but I wanted something different for the shower. I searched "jar recipes" online and found THIS cool site with TONS of recipes to give as gifts in a jar. I used the Cappucino Mix Recipe to fill them both. I did'nt quite fill them so I had to one and a half the recipe. I used SU rub-ons for the jars and paper from My Minds Eye to cover the top of the lid. I wrapped ribbon around the jar lid and attached the directions with linen thread.
