Team Gifts

Well- I've been getting my crafty-craft on while escaping the ridiculous heat here in Texas. I made camouflage clip boards for my group of best girlfriends. We took a girls weekend trip to the beach at stopped at a Buc-ee's to pose with the giant brass beaver outside. It kind of became a thing so I had to add a little pink beaver to the front.

Then I made a quick gift for my teammates. It started with me thinking how I'm so fortunate to work with such an amazing group of ladies. Then that led to this idea...

Little chinese food containers from the craft store. I used my Silhouette to make the labels. Inside I put little necessities for the school year: travel deodorant, gum, wisps (to brush teeth), hand lotion, and hand sanitizer. And of course I added a fortune cookie!

I made the paper fortune cookie with a super easy tutorial from eHow. I just tucked the fortune inside the cookie so it's easy to pull out.

I chose the number 5 because there are 5 of us and 12 and 13 because this is the 2012-2013 school year.

  5. Too cute! Did you just use vinyl for the gifts? Is that sticky on the other side or do you have to glue it?

    1. Haley- I used adhesive vinyl that you can purchase at the craft store. It's amazing stuff!
