Wedding Gifts

We had a few weddings take place in our neighborhood in August.  I wanted to share the gifts I made, maybe you'll get some idea for the next time you have a wedding to attend.

First up, pot holders.  I custom made these to match the bride's chosen kitchen colors.  I used Amy's tutorial.  although this time I doubled the batting rather than the insulbright.  I made my own bias tape, with some of the fun Anna Maria fabric left from my girls' blouses


For another gift, I took some fun china I bought at the local antique store, and put the bowl and tea cup together to make a fun candy dish.



Inside the dish is homemade salt water taffy.  I included the recipe (in the sheet protector below).  The card included the admonition to make life sweet for each other.


All wrapped up and ready to go.

Those pot holders are fabulous. I love the candy dish too. I love seeing the different kinds of things people make with the cup/plate/bowls! They are awesome. Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the move! :)

Maybe I'm a crazy person, but what glue did you use to make the candy dish? I really want to make a few of those for Christmas gifts but I don't want to fudge up the adhesion! Thanks!

Aurora,
I used the E6000 glue. I've used it on several projects now with great success. I know gorilla glue works well too. Good luck!
