Since me and the hubby are a bit poor atm I started to search the house for any ideas for presents. I love giving gifts especially this time of the year....So I used some of these household items:
Oil (Vegetable and some smelly ones too that my mum gave me a long time ago but you can usually get them at cheapo bargain shops for about $2Aus)
Peppermint leaves (Bought a huge bag when I was pregnant not realizing that after having the baby I would never find time to make a pot of tea....That and my favourite one tea pot broke
Thread and sewing machine
Pretty tin which was a gift to us last year with lollies inside
Hot glue (I have a deep, deep love for my glue gun-it's kinda scary)
Now I see the list it is a bit longer than I thought but still I paid no money for anything and have a few things ready to wrap....
(I'll shush up now and show the pics!)
Energy Body Scrub (coffee, Sugar, Salt & Oil. Coffee is great for minimising those wobbly bits)
Will re do the label and make something pretty in photoshop-was just testing to see size.
For my friend's 5yr old girl
My fave of the two....
The tin they will be given in (yes its an old formula tin)
Pretty tin I decorated and inside is....
Tea for your feet!
I made these tea bags as a foot soak with the peppermint tea leaves-so refreshing!
So what do you guys think?
I'm also going to be making stacks of jubes as Christmas trees, resin coasters, beer bread, brownie stack (as a tree kinda thing) and a whole tonne of sugar cookies as trees and decorating then popping in little bags for people at our church. Still have a lot more things to make but from these all I bought was jubes and they were on special! Yippeeeeee
