Friends & Flowers

It's Monday and I hope you're having a start to a FABULOUS week!
I've got several projects to share with you this week and time scheduled for more stamping if my MoJo will only find it's way back to my stamp room! (And stay there...LOL)
As many of you know, I belong to a local group called TOPS. These ladies are some of the sweetest women I've ever met. It brings me joy to do little things for them. So, when my aunt gave these little baby food containers to me recently, I knew I had to figure out something to put inside to give my TOPS friends. Candy was my first thought, but since the group is about losing weight, that was not really the best option.
I found some great smelling chunky potpourri at Walmart for only $1 a bag. It's Sweet Pea & Jasmine scented. Mmmmm.

So, I stuffed each container as full as I could with the potpourri and decorated them with various papers, ribbons, punches, flowers and brads. The sentiment "Friends are the Flowers of Life" was perfect for the top.
These 2 containers use those cool Stix2 double sided adhesive sheets and glitters along with my Martha Stewart leaves punch.

Here is a photo showing the potpourri. I think it was just enough to fill a small dish to scent up their bathrooms.
They were thrilled. I'm on the lookout for more little ideas for these gals. They're so sweet.
Anyone have any ideas for me?
That's all for me for now. I'll see you back here tomorrow!
