Just purchase a "Cup of Soup" microwaveable instant soup bowl. Wrap it with your favorite paper - I used three of six patterns in CTMH's "Caboodle" collection, which will be available January 1!
The cute little monster is from "Monster Medical", a set of adorable little buggy stamps from Artful Inkables. Isn't he a cutie bug?
I cut a couple of circles to adhere to the top, attaching the tag and the "flower" to the circle.
Now, when I was a kid, my mom taught me to make a great "bow" with tissue paper! Have you tried this? Take a tissue (Kleenex) and fold it in 1" accordion folds. Cut it in half; otherwise your bow will be ten inches wide!
Cinch the center of the folded tissue with a piece of hemp or something of the sort. Now "fluff out" the tissue by gently separating the layers (take it easy - they don't make tissues like they used to!). Voila - a cute little bow to decorate your project!
Enjoy your week and take some time for crafting!
