A Gift From MAMMa

My friend Marlene, some of you may know her as MAMMa from Diana Gibbs blog, gave me the cutest gift at convention!


Just looking at it I was in love. I didn't even know what it was!! The flower was all sparkly and embossed and the rose on the front is adorable.


When I lifted it out I saw that it was a container for the new Baker's Twine!! She used one of the embellishment containers and put a hole with an eyelet on the side.


She saved one of the middle plastic things from a ribbon spool to put the twine around. Isn't this such a cute little gift for a fellow stamper?? AND a great way to reuse!! Love it Marlene and YOU too!
Edited To Add: The spool is not attached, I just have it in the center for the photo. It's lose in the container.

  1. How very clever! I marvel at the brain power of some of my fellow stampers and then think, "Why don't I ever come up with something this cool?" Hope she doesn't mind that a few of us will case her ingenious idea!!

  5. Hi Becky,

    I FINALLY remembered my password to comment on here...after months! This is long overdue, but I had to comment on your son's cakes, especially the Wizard of Oz one. I'm a huge WOO fan, and that was gorgeous! I may have to try the shoes.. ;)
