I love participating in swaps. It's fun to create things for others and then get something in return. I joined Erica's Christmas in the Kitchen Exchange over at Golden Egg Vintage and was partnered up with Betty Jean at Shabby Tea Party. We were to create 2 kitchen themed ornaments, a tag or card, a recipe and throw in some goodies. Here is what I made for Betty Jean.
I went to World Market knowing that they had these tiny little graters. It is the perfect size for an ornament. I blinged it up and added a sweet little gingerbread man to it.
I also picked up a mini whisk. I wrapped the handle, added a Santa ornament to the top and finished it up with some red ribbon and beads.
Even though this card isn't kitchen themed, it is perfect for Christmas. Aqua bingo card all dressed up in red, French and vintage touches.
I also sent along a pack of red paper straws, a gingerbread man with bakers twine, socks, peppermint bark and cupcake papers. I hope you liked your goodies Betty Jean!
Betty Jean made this amazing smelling gingerbread man that is covered in pretty glitter. I wish you could smell him!
And isn't this gingerbread house the cutest? It is covered in glitter and has a sweet bottle brush tree. It sits on an electric candle and is so adorably cute.
Here is the tag she made me...I love how she did everything in a gingerbread theme. The tag has a vintage teaspoon and the tiniest gingerbread man cookie cutter tied to it. The recipe is for Frosty Date Ball Cookies...I think I will have to make these for Cody since he loves date cake. She also sent along some candy but Cody stole the Almond Roca as soon as he saw it, I enjoyed the peppermint bark chocolates and I used the mini chocolate Santa's to decorate cupcakes this week. Thank you so much Betty Jean...I love all of my goodies!
