Stamped shortbread.....mmmmmmmm

Yesterday we made and stamped shortbread for my father in law. It was a heap of fun to do. Due to the size of the box I wasn't able to use the cookie stamps as they were too big. So I decided to use the sent with love stamp. This set had not seen ink so was quite safe to use on the shortbread. It didn't come out super clear but I am sure it will not affect the taste of the shortbread one little bit.

I used the new tag a bag gift box to pop the shortbread in and some ruffled elasticated ribbon (wow I think is my new favourite) and finished it off with a tag from the Label Love set. I hope he likes his wee set.

Mmmmm Baked Brown Sugar nom nom nom

I am absolutely loving the new in colours and thought I would share with you a couple of things I had made using baked brown sugar. Its such an awesome colour and totally perfect for the males.
I made a little box for my father in laws birthday which will most likely include Hersheys kisses (only the very special people in my life get Hersheys kisses) and a card to match.

My daughter and I are making and stamping  shortbread tomorrow (yes you heard correctly) with the Stampin Up cookie press stamps and we will decorate a Tag a Bag gift box and send everything off to Grandad.

I will post a photo of our shortbread and decorated box in the next few days. I hope he enjoys his gifts as they will be made with lots of love from both of us.

Here's the little box. Now the ribbon was retired and I had exactly the right amount for the card and the box. Grandad is a great gardener hence the reason for the flower rather than a boat


The card was super quick and easy to make also
