Baby Shower favors...

Hello My crafty friends!!!! Today is a Crafty Junkie Too DT day! Today's project centers around "Earth Day!" We were asked to make a project using recycled materials, whatever we have on hand. So I started saving up on toilet paper rolls, and came up with these cute little baby shower favors for one of my friends at MOPS.
 Started with these...
 and printed off some of my favorite papers from the Teresa Collins Baby Boutique cartridge.
 Then I wrapped the rolls with white tulle and tied off one side using some twine.
 Next, I cut the paper into strips at 4.25" x 6".
 I wrapped these pieces around the tulle and attached them together.
 Next, I typed up a cute little sentiment on my computer and punched the pieces out with a couple of my favorite punches.
 Stand the rolls up on their side and stuff them full of delish kisses and hugs!
 Then you can tie the other side up with twine.
 The last step is to put the sentiment onto the favors, and that's it! ;)
 I think they turned out pretty cute and the new mom loved them too!
