Watermelon Gift Bag

**UPDATE** Be sure to include an email if you don't have a blogger profile with your email displayed. If you haven't received your template, you may email me at the email listed on my blogger profile page.


Another template share!! I designed and created this tote for the June Secret Stamper gift using the little skunk from the Pun Fun set. If you would like my template and instructions, leave me a comment and I'll send it over. The sentiment frame is from the Great Friend set and I cut it in half. I added Jelly Belly Watermelon jelly beans and the lotion is Bath Junkie Watermelon scent along with a bag of sour patch gummy watermelon chews. It is too hot to mail chocolates in Houston, so I opted for candy. I wanted something for the "stinky" in the sentiment...that would be the Watermelon scented lotion and something to represent the "sweet" from the sentiment...that would be the candy.



Another option would be to add some home baked cookies. Aren't these watermelon cookies ADORABLE!!! I converted my template and instructions into PDF form. If you would like a copy, leave me a comment and I'll send it over by email.
