Let them eat cake :)

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share some altered goodies I made :)


My friend buys these lotions from AVON and the containers that hold the lotion are shaped like ice cream cones :)  I asked her to save me the containers to alter :) 

I bought some Styrofoam balls and cut them in half - then I glued twine to them ... then I glued the balls to the top of the ice cream cone containers :) 

I used Bo Bunny's Sweet Tooth collection :)

I made these for some of the Mom's that brought their kids to Brookie's birthday party as a thank you :) 















Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
