Doodlebug Friendly Forest HB2U gift

Hello Doodlebug friends! Aimee here with you sharing my Friendly Forest birthday gift set. The colors are so fun and vibrate, I thought it would be perfect to wish someone a "Happy" birthday!!

The first piece of my project is this little basket which sports 2 (homemade) bars of pumpkin spice scented soap. The basket was created using the  3-D fruit basket cut which I got from the Silhouette Studio. I used a brown plaid piece of pattern paper from the collection for the basket and lined it some of that gorgeous striped washi tape.

Then came the fun part of decorating the front with all of the embellishments such as the new clothes pins and glitter Sprinkles! To add a little more dimension, I adhered 3 of the acorns together and folded them upwards.

The card came together easily by adding washi tape, stickers, Sprinkles, a leaf diecut, and a Doodlepop owl to the front of  a Doodlebug card.

And finally the gift itself.....I got in the kitchen with my sweet girl and we made some pumpkin spice soap bars. I found a simple recipe off of Pinterest. I wrapped strips of vellum and pattern paper around them and then topped it off with some stickers, twine, and the wonderful new goodies from Doodlebug.....the clothes pins! I can't wait to give this gift away to someone special!!

  1. What an absolutely adorable and happy gift set, Aimee! Love the little basket! The 3d acorn and little clips and all those embellies are just so cute. Adorable card design, too, and I'm so impressed with the fact that you and your daughter made that soap! How cool is that!
