I have 3 great grands (little ones) and a senior buddy and a chemo buddy and I am always looking for cute inexpensive little gifties that I can put in a little padded envelope or include in a box that I might be sending to them. I used glass page pebbles - which I have had in my stash for a while but was at Dollar Tree last week and saw them there in the house deco aisle, as well as Hobby Lobby. They come in a few different sizes and for this project I used the larger size. I also used a scrap of orange thick cardstock, white thick cardstock, Memento black ink, ModPodge, and an 1 1/4 inch circle punch.
The stamps I used are: 2324-C Satisfied 2327-C Thoughtful 2328-C Happy and 2005-D Holiday Penguin.
Using an older paint brush I applied mod podge on each circle completely covering with a thin layer. I put my glass pebble on top and yes you do have a bit of wiggle room to adjust and get in the center Set aside to dry.
You can use any smaller image as I did with the penguin for this project, would be fun to get the kids involved in and makes a cute little "extra" to tuck inside your gift.
My grand daughter doesn't really like for her kiddos to have a lot of candy so this is perfect in their Halloween/holiday package. One of the great grands (pictured above)is in kindergarten this year and loves to hang her art work on the refrigerator so this works perfect.
Cute idea! Quick and easy, and can be used for any occasion.
These are so cute and really fun to make too!! I adore that penguin! I think I am in need of a few of these myself and I thank you for the inspiration! HUGS
What a great idea, these are just adorable and perfect for your great grandkids!
These are adorable, and your Bella is simply gorgeous! She gets prettier every year!
She's a doll and the magnets are so fun! Some friends made me some one year and I love them! I agree with your granddaughter about candy... too much sugar and food dye. ugh The dressing up is so fun though. I've done other things over the years too. They love cash! lol
Fantastic project Shirley...Loz
Your great granddaughter is a beautiful little lady. What a fun gift in lieu of candy!
