SU Stars Blog Hop

Altered Embellishment Containers

Welcome to the SU Stars Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Brenda's Stamping Corner here

If you want to see the entire list of bloggers here.

Need an Quick ‘n Easy Gift?  How about these handy little containers.  Perfect for jewelry, candy, buttons or little what-not's.  Great for organizing your embellishments or giving some as treats to that special Hostess!

Make that first visit from the Tooth Fairy memorable with a card or certificate displaying the Tooth Fairy's official seal. Your children will rest easy knowing their teeth are in good hands. Check out how cute my Tooth Fairy boxes are so your child or grandchild can collect those $$$ from the Tooth Fairy on special days. 


Great for a little jewelry gift or to tuck in an Easter Basket, Halloween Treat Sack or Christmas Stocking.

These would make great favors for a Birthday Party, Baby Shower or Bridal Shower.  There are just so many possibilities with just a little embellishment and paper.

The new Pompom trim in the Occasions Mini catalog just MAKES these adorable containers ever so adorable!  I love this trim on everything!

I punched one for the outside and one for the inside of the lid.
