Summery gift box decor

I had a local bakery make these amazing coconut macaroons…..


and yes they taste just as good as they look. The problem was that the box was so plain. So I decided to spruce it up Smile

I cut strips of paper 2 inches by 12 inches and folded them accordion style……

After adding a few embellishments I came up with this….

Crafty weekend

I know how excited you must be to find out about the crafts I eluded to in my last post right? lol

Well like I said before my “bestie” came to visit and we have the same craft disease/obsession and the result of that was some crafting bliss.

First we made the cutest fridge magnets out of bottle tops look how fun and easy they were….



all you need is a bottle cap, some cute paper (she cut her circles out of magazines so they were fun and shiny), a magnet, and some hot glue.

We also made these rings out of wire and beads…….






I made the first two and Brandi made the cute flower Smile

Don’t you love them? I was thinking about doing a giveaway but it’s hard to get the sizing just right unless I fly you to Montana and used your finger (ha ha), but I am debating on doing a little tutorial if anyone was interested?
