Presents!


I made this to package up the peanut brittle for my Dr. My endocrinologist, that I see for my type 1 diabetes- yes I made her candy. She loved it! She is the best doctor I have ever had, I adore her. She also is not diabetic so it wasn't like I was trying to kill her or anything. I used some yummy ribbon from Michaels, a recycled container that the peanuts came in, and my lovely WMS remedies set. I love this set. Its so simple and perfect. You just cut it out with the matching nestie and you are good to go. I tied it on with a little twine I bought from Crate and Barrel. It was something like 2300 yards so I am good for awhile! LOL

I bet she did LOVE this package ....... she probably did not want to open it but looking at how beautiful the outside is the inside had to be just as fantastic!!! I know what you mean about loving your doctor..... when I prego with number 3 I drove an hour and a 1/2 to the doctor...... the day she was born there was a blizzard but it was well worth it to me!!! Happy New Year ~~

Very pretty Michelle! Your bow looks great! Did you tie it yourself? I had the hardest time trying to tie big bows for presents this year. BTW, I just posted the same WMS tag to my blog too. :) Hope you had a nice Christmas!
