VC_rocks Blog hop- Hostess Gifts and other non-card projects

I'm starting this early as I'll be away from my computer for the weekend. I'm headed out of town to see my friend's son get married. So I'm setting up my part of the blog hop early. However, the rest of the people will have theirs up on Saturday and Sunday.

If you started the blog at our main site, you came from here If you're following along, you came from Barb Furlong's blog, located here.


Hostesses are wonderful. I like to spoil mine. Each one gets a gift that I make for them right at their party. Sometimes I make it in advance so it's ready when I arrive. Here's something I make for a hostess with younger children. The stamp is retired but the kids love this and their moms do as well

Here's a tealight holder that I made with the Flower Folds die and the Big Shot. I cut up a disposable foil pan for it. It sure looks better than the pan.

Lastly, I like to tuck a card into the bag with her stuff. I really like to make these cute 3x3 cards. They are a perfect way to say Thank You. The size isn't too big and I hand write a note for my host/hostess. 

Now you're on to the next stop in the hop. Remember if you're here before Saturday, the rest won't be up yet. They will be ready at 10 am eastern time on Saturday morning. Leave me a comment and a way to get in touch with you and I'll draw a name for blog candy. No pictures but I will say that it's ribbon. I have lots of retired ribbon that I've been hoarding. Now it's time to go live at someone else's house :)

Next stop is Jane Hignite's blog. Have fun on the rest of the hop.

Love the all the projects, but that little tea light candle is so pretty. I've seen them done before, but love how you made yours!

Great ideas, June! I love the foil pan one. I've got to try that now.

Great job June. Love your projects -- that foil pan idea is definitely a keeper (now I will just need a note to myself where I put it for safe keeping, lol). Thanks for sharing.

Great gifts, June! I love the foil pan idea for die-cutting! I happen to have one in the cupboard! :)

Awesome job, I love the tealight holder. I have never seen one made that way. Maybe you will share with us how you made it. Thanks for sharing your idea about the foil pans. That was great!

What great projects. It really makes another use for dies.

Very cute projects. I am now regretting not having gotten the tooth fairy stamp. I didn't have grandchildren at the time and didn't expect to get any any time soon and wham...now I have 3, counting a step-grddtr. TFS!

OK, these are wow. I made a bunch of those tea light holders one year for Christmas and they were well received. Thanks for reminding me to do some more this year.
