Trio of Gifts

I have spent the last few weeks making each of the lovely ladies, who come to my card class, a small gift.  I made up a gift bag of three cards (will show the cards in another post), a small box with a soap inside and a jar of homemade Sugar Lemon Body Scrub.  I do hope they like their gifts.

Here is a close up of the gift bag of cards.  I used the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags.  They were the perfect size to fit three cards and envelopes.

A close up of the box.  I measured the size of the soap and then created the box so that the soap would fit exactly right.

I handmade some Sugar Lemon Body Scrub and packaged it into small glass jars.  I then decorated the jar with a tag and some ribbon.  I chose Hello Honey cardstock and ribbon to match the lemon colour body scrub.

Thank you for stopping by today.
