Bon Appetit Hostess Gift

The next time you're invited to a friends for
dinner, consider bringing a hand decorated towel as a hostess gift.

I altered a flour sack towel by sewing a strip of ribbon along the bottom of the towel and then stamping just above the ribbon. For the stamping I arranged the silverware and words from the Bon Appetit set by Clear and Simple Stamps on my acrylic block and then stamped them repeatedly along the bottom of the towel using VersaCraft ink and heat set them with my iron.

I picked up the little tin for $1 at Michael's and thought it would work well to hold the towel so I stamped the Let's Eat sentiment and put that on the front of the tin then added a bow and small little matching gift card to the top. I plan to roll the towel up to fit in the tin.

This will be great to have on hand the next time I need a little hostess gift. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you're all having a wonderful day!
