Helping Mom...

Hey Ya'll,
I have some fun goodies to share with you today.  My Mom is helping out some other family members with an up coming baby shower.  She wanted some things for gift cards and help putting together a couple of game prizes, so here is what we came up with.
Before she came over, I fired up the imagine machine and the Baby Boutique cartridge to print out some papers and cut out a few things.  I printed lots of blue paper and the printed and cut the bows with fit to page using the Artiste cartridge.  All of these envelopes are from the Artiste cartridge and cut at 5.00.
 These cards are from Artiste as well.  They are really clever and the center holds a gift card.  We printed a little script on the computer that says "A Gift for You From Baby Jones".
 Mom also wanted some little treat boxes.  They haven't been filled yet, but the top will be tied closed with baker's twine.  These are so easy to make.  They were cut using the fit to page feature.  We also cut a label shape with coordinating paper and added these adorable paper bows.  One of my favorite cuts from the Artiste Cartridge!
 You can't really see in the picture, but these are little trifle bowls.  We used a Martha Punch that is lace hearts and punched the edges of paper to look like a cupcake wrapper.  Then they are filled with chocolates and goodies, basket wrapped with curling ribbon and a paper bow like what was used on the envelopes and boxes.
 The last thing are a couple of other gift goodies.  These are glass coffee mugs filled with coffees and chocolates and then basket wrapped.  We added a label to the front with extras from the other goodies.  They also include the cutest mocha and latte towels that we found at Wal-Mart of all places.  Hee! Hee!  I would rather take a beating then to shop at Wal-Mart, but we found some really cut things to add to our little gifts.
In case you didn't notice already, It's a Boy!  Hee! Hee!  We had nothing in our craft rooms for baby, so the Imagine machine really bailed us out on this one.  We had the most wonderful couple of days shopping and putting these special little things together.  I know Mom is going to be the bell of the ball with all of these cute little gifts.
I really hope you enjoyed your visit today and we would love to hear your comments.  Since Mom has an iPhone now, I know she will be watching out for comments, so please let her know what you think!  Thanks so much for visiting!
