Mother's Day Gifts

We hosted the Mother's Day celebration over the past weekend for SAN (Singapore Association of Nevada), it was a lovely evening at our backyard, and here's the homemade gift I made for all the mothers in the club.

Lemon Olive Oil Foot Scrub


the project I am sharing is actually the gift with its packaging


I started with the box that holds my cup noodles, LOL! Cover it with old book pages


aged it with inks....


and then a bit of stamping...


tie tulle and handmade tissue paper flower on the outside of the box


and then fill up the box up with jars of handmade foot scrub.....



moss, roses and cut out butterfly....


oh and the medallion 


I am linking this project to the challenge over at




more photos of my Mother's Day party if you want to see, LOL!



the dessert table








Ok, I'll visit you when I get home from NYC
