Secret Sister's Blog Hop

Merry Christmas and thank you for stopping by our hop today as we reveal the wonderful projects we have made for our "Secret Sisters". With blog hopping and crafting, we have all become sisters. What was done -- those of us were interested we given a "Secret Sister"  to craft something special. Not only do we have a Secret Sister but we also gave some "hints" as to Our Favorite Things. How special is that. Now, ssshhhhhh, please don't tell our Secret Sisters as it hasn't been revealed yet as to who has who while you hop along with us!!!!

If you have arrived from Sherry then you are on the right path to Secret Sisters but if you just happened upon my blog, please start at the beginning as we don't want you to miss one special gift!!!!

Here is my special present for my secret sister. I'm not allowed to say who she is yet but I can faithfully say she lives above me :O).

I really enjoyed making my special gifts.

The first one I took a Popsicle stick I got from someone, it had " tied together with heart strings " engraved in it. I took my crop-a-dile and inserted two holes and added some bakers twine to hang it. I covered it a lil to give it a distressed feel. 

I then took a pringles top and cut a piece of paper to fill the inside. I chose a pretty scrap piece that has white flowers and a red heart in it. I used some zots to tack that down. I then took my crop-a-dile and put a hole in the top and also one towards the bottom. The top one I used the same bakers twine as above and put it in to hang it with. I then took some e-6000 glue and put it around the hole I made at the bottom. I also put it around the bottom of a Silver blinged out butterfly. I then pushed the pointy part of the butterfly thru the hole and held it there until it was dried. I then took a iamroses pink and white rose and glued it to the top. 

Well I am the last one on the list. I hope you had a fabulous time in our secret sister blog hop. Thank you for joining us and I do hope you will come and hop with us if we decide to have another one.
