Cutest Cone-Shaped Pouches...How To

Image
These little pouches originated as "May Flower Baskets" they were filled with flowers and left on friend's doorsteps...
This is our take on them..


Perfect for...
wrapping that little (or big) treasure
leaving on someone's porch with a note and a truffle
using as a favor at your next party (make them mini)





Do you want to make one?
Grab some scrapbook paper, ribbon, your grandmother's buttons, a stapler, glue dots... and you're ready!
Step 1: Choose your paper, and cut into a perfect square. (this example is using a 8.5" x 8.5")

Step 2: Measure about 3.5" from the top point on both sides and make a small mark. This is where you will fold in towards the center. (you can also just eyeball it!)


Step 3: Choose your embellishments... ribbon, buttons, flowers, etc. Don't be afraid to use different patterns and colors. For this project, we literally used scraps of ribbon!

Step 4:

Layer everything together...start with ribbon and end with flowers. Pictured here are two …

Fun Quote for Friday

Just wanted to share this darling little quote with you... I think it's a good way to start the weekend!
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, soda pop in the other, body thoroughly used up - totally worn out and screaming, "Woo hoo, what a ride!"
Isn't that cute?! We tie it on little treat bags for birthday gifts. (I'm not sure who the author is.) Happy Friday!

September Visiting Teaching Message is out

Image
And we are super excited about it!
The message is titled, "Understand and Live the Gospel of Christ" and has SO many great quotes. One of the lines that stood out to us reads,
"Sisters, now more than ever, we need women to step up and be strong..." which is why we thought this vintage photo fit perfectly.
Our title reads, "We need STRONG women... who can harvest and preserve the power of the gospel!"
Isn't it true? Nowdays we HAVE to be strong in order to survive this crazy life!
This quote is printed on the backside of the message.
Since fall is the time to harvest and preserve fruits & veggies, we added a family recipe to our gift. I grew up eating this yummy pear jam. My husband quickly got hooked when we got married, and it is sure to be a favorite within your family, too!
Inside we have included the full message, a Nature Valley granola bar, and of course, the recipe for Pear Preserves. Here is a picture of everything that is included. This m…
