hostess gift

Hi everyone!  So today I want to share my newest hobby!  I recently splurged on some metal stamps and I've been stamping on wood and metals.  The craft ideas are just endless here too.  It makes me a little nervous though because I really don't want to make a mistake and have to start over.

I started practicing on some wooden cooking spoons and I saw this really neat gift idea HERE.  Since we have to go to an acquaintances' house one night for dinner, I thought it'd be a fun time to practice and make a hostess gift.

So I bought these wooden spoons and stamped the family's last name on the handles.  Might be hard to see in the photos.  They are small but until I expand my supplies and maybe buy a larger font size, I have to make do.  I really wanted flat handled spoons but those are hard to find too.  But I thought these worked okay.

Here is another view.

Here is everything all wrapped up.  I included a couple towels and attached a tag with Lawn Fawn's thanks die.  I had some matching ribbon in my stash too.

I'll share something that I made using these metal stamps for my daughter in my next post.  I can't wait to try other projects but I'm in the middle of waiting for more stamping blanks.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is brilliant! It's thoughtful and personal, the perfect way to show appreciation. Fantastic gift idea.
I think i'd have to sell all my rubber stamps to get me some metal ones. hehe... Glad you are enjoying something new!

That's a super idea for a hostess gift. I have a set of stamps for leather. I wonder if they would work on wood...maybe soft wood. You always have the most innovative craft projects...so creative!
