What I gave to Lori...

I guess you all know by now that I am totally addicted to swaps. I tried to quit. I really did...
Anyway, y'all already saw all the goodness Lori sent to me, so I wanted to share what I gave her. I love to do stuff for the children, sometimes, too. I decided to make Lori's girls Valentine's aprons and gave them a few treats. I covered old formula cans with scrapbook paper and added wire for handles. I guess I forgot to take a picture of those...bummer...They were very cute.

I made Lori a ruffled apron, a bird tassel since she loves birds and tassels. I also gave her silver XO's, angel wings, love birds, a cherub, apothecary jar with peanut M&M's, and a tag I made.

Here is a close-up of the apron. I loved this one!!

I just painted the tag{it was off-white, originally} and glued shell buttons on.

Here is the tassel I made for Lori. I{my husband} just drilled a hole straight thru the bird and strung the ribbon thru. If you want to make your own tassel you can find a tutorial here.
I had so much fun putting together Lori's package!!
