Hostess Gift

My first workshop is next week, so I worked on my hostess gift over the weekend. I found this little bucket in Target's $1 spot. They had this green, red, yellow, and I believe a blue. I thought this green coordinated nicely with the Apple Cider DSP.

I filled the bucket with a set of 4 cards and envelopes, a jar filled with goodies, a jumbo paperclip bookmark, a bag of catalog tabs, and a gift certificate for a free classic ink pad.

The chipboard tag and card set were all created with the Apple Cider DSP and the True Friend stamp set. Individual cards (with recipes) are included below.

I had a lot of fun creating this set. I hope my hostess likes it!
