Bridal Shower Prizes

Hello!!! As promised...today, I bring you crafty goodness!!! For my daughter's shower, I am going with an orange theme to match the bridal party colors. I've been picking things up here and there, while I'm out and about, along with making a few prizes. It really has been a lot of fun planning! A couple of days ago, I made these prizes...

I found these oval clear paperweights somewhere on clearance and set them in the craft room for future use. I pulled them off the shelf and decoupaged some decorative paper from my paper stash onto the back. They look so pretty in person!

For one of the games we will be needing clothespins. So instead of boring clothespins, I thought why not make them pretty and to go with the color scheme. They were so quick! I cut the paper to fit and decoupaged them on. I made 50 of these in about an hour. I'm planning to use some for gifts, they're great for clipping notes together, closing up chip bags and cereal bags. We use them all the time for snacks...I like these better since they're all prettied up!

More clips. (Remember to click on the picture to see a bigger view).
Today, I am cleaning and packing to go to Chicago, again this weekend. I'll be there all next week. Watch for posts from the Windy City next week! I will try to post some pics too :-)
Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Hugs!
Kim

Looks like the tasting was a feast!Lunch maybe early today, I am now hungry! Love the covered clothspins. I wonder if the clothspins makers out there have noticed an increase in sales, since crafters are now making them all so pretty! Have a nice weekend.
