Dressed Up Seed Packetspaper (12x12 sheets fit 2)
scissors and/ paper cutter
corner rounder punch
The seed packets I used are 3.25" x 4.5". To create the basic shape start with rectangle 6" x 7.25". From each side (left and right) draw a line 2" in. From the top and bottom draw a line 3/4" from the edge.
Cut the rectangles drawn in the corners. Fold the right and left sides in and glue up the middle.
Round the corners and glue the top or bottom. Slip the seed packet inside.
I glued a cute "Happy May" piece on each packet and left the top unglued. Deliver!
Easy Jelly Bean Cones:
No cellophane bags needed!Sandwich baggie
Fill one corner of the baggie. Gather and twist the baggie.
Securely tie the ribbon and cut off the seal at the top. Round off any edges that poke up.

Smile Gift BasketsDon't we all know someone going through a hard time? Well I have two close friends/family members that have especially been on my mind lately. One of them has had her SECOND back surgery in 6 months and the other has always lived close to her parents and they had to move :( I put together a few things today to give them and here they are:
Candy (gourmet jelly beans, caramels, all reds starbursts, turtles, mnms, blow pops)
Seed packets :)
An exotic smelling candle
nail polish and files
Jaime wrote me an email last night filled with lovely compliments. How cute is she? Have you done something to help someone smile today?
