I'm obviously in a "food mood" lately!!! First a popsicle album, now some washcloth candies...YUM!
These were soooooo simple to make. I bought some inexpensive solid-colored baby washcloths from Wal-Mart in the baby section. I folded them until I had a narrow "roll", then just rolled them up and secured the end with a piece of tape.
The swirl on top was made by cutting a 2" circle out of vellum (from the George & Basic Shapes cartridge) and adhering a 4" swirl cut from light and dark pink cardstock (from the Cricut Paisley cartridge).
Then I just placed the rolled up washcloth and swirl topper into a cello bag and tied pink ribbons on both ends. I inserted five "candies" into a large cello bag and added a bag topper. (The silver charm says "It's a Girl"...it doesn't show up in this photo).
How fun would this be for a shower gift??? I LOVE LOVE LOVE this project and definitely plan to make more. Let me know what you think!
