So, my boyfriend just bought himself a brand new house. Well, it's not brand new, it's from 1930! Anywhoo... I thought "what would a crafty eco-nut girlfriend do as a house warming gift?"
Well here's what I came up with:
This is part of my plan. I'm going to pick up a bottle of wine (not the mostly consumed one shown here!) and put it in the wine tote found here: http://www.sewingrepublic.com/projectPdf/wine_tote.pdf. And the wine glasses are also part of the gift. I picked them up at a thrift store for 49 cents a piece!! They're like new, they had curly ribbon wrapped around them, and were clearly wedding favors earlier in their lives.
The other part of my plan is a basket of home made cleaners shown here:
Because he's a man, this is the kind of stuff he won't think about buying first! I'm going to get a kitchen sized garbage can to put it all in.
The package consists of 100% post consumer recycled paper towels and toilet paper. There's also a box of kleenex.
I made the cleaners myself from these websites:
The window cleaner and creamy scrubber are from the first one.
The multi-purpose cleaner is from the second one.
The deodorizer is from the last one.
I made the labels myself which include ingredients, directions and why they rock.
Additionally I made some swiffer pads out of terry. They're hiding behind the bottle of cleaner on the right. He's going to love it. He really likes when I make him stuff.
Hope you enjoy!
