Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to Sandra's Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop! 

If you are coming from the Amazing Abby @ Scrapbookaholic by Abby then yup you are in the right place!! If you just popped in to my blog , you don't want to miss a single awesome project, you can start at the beginning with our Amazing host and Birthday Girl Sandra @ 365 days of Cricut! Sandra has some cool prizes so be sure to comment on on blogs to qualify!

Ok so now on to my project! My Beautiful Niece Tabby just turned 2 and is having her birthday Party tomorrow so I made this cute gift bag and tag for her present!
Isn't it so Pretty and Pink haha!
The tag is the main feature of the bag it is...you guessed it a Shaker!
I think she will like it! When I was little I used to catch butterflies and I would always throw little flowers in the jar, so that is what I did here! The little flowers that are sitting at thebottom are charms.
This took a little thought to figure out how to make it a shaker but I am really happy with the way it turned out! She is super girly so I know this was perfect for her! You can't see it in the Pic but I added stickles to the butterflies to make them sparkle!

Materials used:
  • Gypsy
  • Kates Abc's Cartridge
  • Preserves {tag}
  • K Andrew Design Positive Thoughts stamp set
  • gelly roll pen
  • Paper is from K&Companys Valentines stack
I dont have any blog candy for today, I have reached my limit for the month hehe hubby cut me off LOL, but I still have a giveaway going on for those that grab my blinkie so all those that leave a comment here will be entered too! I am giving away one Greeting Farm Stamp of your choice!

Time to hop on to the next fabulous blog which is Mel@ Scrappy Mel! Thanks for  joining us have a great weekend!
