{thank you} tube gifty

I have a little gift set up on the SRM blog today.  :)  I made it earlier in the summer for a little friend of ours who fed and watered Lucky while we were gone for the day.  Her Mom didn't want me to pay her so I put this little set together using a Skinny Tube, a couple borders from the Thank You collection and a tag from the new Labels by the Dozen.  Some lovely Twinery Twine "tied" it all together! :) She loves to get her hands dirty in the garden so I thought this set would make her happy.
I needed a way to anchor the Thanks a Bunch flag so I used my Crop-A -Dial to punch a hole through the layered flower and stuck the pick through it and into the soil pod that came with the mini pot.
I decorated both the pot and the tube with the adorable daisy chain border and used the scallop border to finish off the pattern paper wrap on the tube. I love the twine, it is a great finishing touch.
Tubes make gift giving so easy (and inexpensive) and memorable! They are food safe and come in a variety of sizes!  Look here for more gift giving ideas using SRM Tubes!
Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day, friends!


If you want to be happy, be.
