ABaC Monday with Bugaboo Stamps!

It is ABaC day at Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Blog! Today, I along with my talented design team friends Jami, and Jackie have made projects to share that ARE NOT CARDS! We hope you like them!

I altered this container of sidewalk chalk using one of Bugaboo Stamps 'More Turtles'. I made matching tags for this, as well as a few other small toys to include as a token Birthday gift for one of my DD's friends. They requested 'No Gifts', and like most children - they don't lack for toys! However, I chose these because they are the sort that are easily 'used up', and thought they turned out cute! I hope the mom won't mind! Stay tuned to see the rest of the altered toys and the card as I post them! :) The entire 5 piece giftset cost less than $5.00 to make!
