I had a crafting play date today with Kim, Claudette & Leslie - we had a blast talking story, crafting & enjoying some lunch. It's been a while since I got to actually "play", so it was a very nice break from work.
Claudette taught us how to make the adorable tea light cakes she learned from one of Teri's tutorials. Thanks Teri for such an adorable and "outside of the box" project!! These cakes are so quick and easy to make. I can think of SO many possibilities for Bridal Showers, Birthday Parties, Anniversaries...really any occasion.
Leslie was so kind to give us these adorable plastic containers that fit the tea cakes perfectly!! Another option would be to create a cute little cake box to house the tea cake. If you are interested in the containers, they will be available for purchase from Pineapple Cove. We also have a few die cut options in the store for making boxes that would fit these cakes nicely.
Another project we worked on were mini composition books. Leslie made the one on the right and I made the one on the left. The cute labels are from Papertrey Inks' Take a Note stamp set. I fell in LOVE with this set and will have to go get me one now.
The books were super quick and easy to make. I'm going to use mine for my To Do list that I carry in my purse, so I didn't want to put too many embellishments on it that could fall off. As a sealer, I put a thin layer of mod podge so that it can withstand the wear & tear of going in and out of my black hole.
It was a very productive, fun and exciting day for me to be able to craft with the girls. Claudette made us all some delicious Black and White cookies! Leslie gave us all a bag of her Really Yummy Snack Mix. I can't wait to open my bag as I drive home tonight. And Kim brought along her adorable little guy Jonathan, who didn't make a peep the whole time we giggled & crafted. Best baby ever!!! Thanks girls for such a wonderful and fun day! I can't wait until next time!!
