A Baby Gift by Cathy


Hi everyone!  Cathy here with you today, sharing a quick and easy idea for a baby gift.  I started with a mason jar and painted it with some light blue chalk paint..easy peasy, but a bit boring.  So I decided to add some of SRM's new 4 inch White Lace and bit of  Caribbean Baker's Twine around the top of the jar.  It dressed up the plain jar just perfect.  All I had to do next was add some pretty pink flowers.

I used one of SRM's new linen bags, this bag is 4x6!  So it was perfect for adding a sweet little scene to the front and holding a couple of little baby toys!  I used a 4 inch round white doily for my base and added some Simple Stories Hello Baby embellishments, then the final finishing touches with SRM's Take 2 Baby Stickers by the Dozen.  I used the border stickers along the bottom of the bag...they stick wonderfully and securely.  Then I added the " Oh Baby" sentiment on a. SRM 1 1/2 inch punched light blue circle.  Adorable!

I decided to add a little tag to the jar.  So I used another 4 inch white doily, again using the Simple Stories Hello Baby line and more borders from the Take 2 Baby Stickers by the Dozen.  To hang the little tag from one of the flower stems I created the little lace hanger with just a twist of

 A simple gift with a big effect.  I really love the look of the lace on the chalky finished jar.  Simple and stunning!
