I'm Meeting a Blog Friend Today!!!

Today I get to meet a blog friend for the first time!  I'm so excited!  I'm planning a brunch for her and her husband!  I'll do a post about it soon, but for now, I'll just show you a little project I made for her to take on her trip home.

Okay, that one is actually for her husband, but I thought it was appropriate for Memorial Day weekend!  This is the one I made for her:
I had a couple of large coffee creamer containers and you know I couldn't throw them away!  I'm so glad I didn't!  They were perfect for making this project.  All I needed was a some wrapping paper (I had this awesome double sided paper), scissors, Mod Podge, tacky glue and a few embellishments.

I cut the paper to fit over the labels, front and back.  Using a sponge brush and some Mod-Podge, I adhered them to the containers. 
A little ribbon, a few fabric stars and a couple of buttons later......
Aren't they just seriously cute??  And what did I fill them with?
Homemade Carmel Corn!! one has to share, they each have their own!
Now, I have to go.  I'm having special guests for brunch this morning and I have a few things to do...


  1. How lovely! Enjoy your meeting dear Danni!!!

  3. Homemade caramel corn. My oh my oh my! I love that stuff. Good thing I don't keep corn syrup on hand or I'd be making it all the time.
