1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Engagement/Bride-to-Be gift?? on: December 23, 2006 06:36:37 PM
So, one of my best friends just got engaged (yesterday, in fact) and I am SO excited.  The wedding probably wont be for at least another year, so that she has plenty of time to prepare, but I was wondering if anyone had any cute ideas for engagement/bride-to-be gifts. 

I would like to make something that I could send her randomly at some point to ease some of the stress that is wedding planning!

Thanks in advance!

How adorable!! I love the one with the name on it! These would make cute ornaments or name tags for packages!

I made my fragrant rocks this weekend!

They aren't quite done drying yet, but so far I'm happy with the results.  I used a whole wheat graham flour that had quite a bit of texture. 

Also, I used some Potpourri oil, that I just happened to have.  I found the fragrance oil at hobby lobby today which I think I will use if I do this again. 

I was wondering where you find essential oils though?  I didn't see any with the fragrance oil.  I was thinking of making some lip balm that says it requires essential oil so I was just wondering where I would find that.

Wow! So cute!  I think I would call the first one a tiger instead of a lion or cat! Smiley I bet he'll love this christmas gift!

So I definately tried to make a doll like this and I used the sock idea.  (I was a lurker here for a few weeks before i joined) this was such a great idea.  Unfortunately, yours look much better than mine.  My sewing skills are not up to par and my patience is short.  I just wanted to tell you how adorable these are and thanks for the inspiration.  Maybe as some point I will try again.  I'd love to be able to make these and donate them to kids.

I know this is an old thread but i was wondering what colors people used to make them.  I was thinking about making them this weekend for the bathroom in my new apartment.  I know it says food coloring, so i was wondering if you could mix food coloring to make rock colors or what you did. 

I was thinking about putting them in a glass container with some fake flowers.  My bathroom is sort of a palm tree theme.  Creme & dark green colors. 

Any other ideas?

I love this idea because i'm guessing these blankets wouldnt get quite as warm as the fleece blankets that everyone makes by tying the pieces together.  I love those blankets but can really use them because they are so thick and warm.  This is so cute and I'm assuming a little less toasty Wink

I really like the different paper you used for the backgrounds and the frames are awesome!  Someone else said this, but I loved that you took pictures and then just traced those.  I remember having to sit for someone to trace my silhouette from a big lamp when I was a kid and it was NOT fun.  I'm sure that method made for much more agreeable subjects!

Cute!  That would be great for a block/construction center in a preschool room.  I'll have to remember this for when I get my first job Wink
