This week, the lucky winner of the spotlight of the week is...... Olivia!! Olivia is my new niece from my brother-in-law's new wife! Anways, so Audrey picked out her name last week. I really try to keep my spotlight of the week gifts between $1-2 dollars if not less. I know I have probably said this a million times, but Audrey really does love doing this with me. She loves when she can pick out somebody's name and she loves to draw them a picture too. She does also love to help me make whatever it is I am making for the spotlight that week. It's so fun to get her involved with this!
Anyways, I was at the dollar tree the other day and was looking around figuring out what I could do for Olivia. So, I used this idea that I used to make part of Brandon's valentines gift, and made one for her..except a bit smaller. :) I found a cupcake tin at the dollar store and immediately thought of using that idea. But this time I put a couple of bows that I made, some candy and little notes to go on the candy inside the cupcake tins. Then I just covered it with the paper that I had at home. It was so fun to make and you can be sure that I am going to make more of these because they are sooooo easy and such a fun little gift to give and receive for that matter. And it's so inexpensive!! That is my kind of crafting! haha!
So, this is what you do. Get a tin fill it up with the person's favorite things.
Then you find some cute paper that you think will suit the person you are doing the spotlight for.
Then you add a tag to the top of it and I actually added some butterflies to add to the top of the paper as well. It gave it some more character!! I just cut out the butterflies that came with this paper pad that I had, and glued it onto the circled paper. (By the way, all of the paper that you see me craft with, is all from Hobby Lobby!! They have some amazingly cute paper pads.)
