gumball gifts...

A couple of weeks ago I was at Walmart and I found myself wandering down the Easter Candy aisle.  (imagine!!!  peeps, anyone??)   There were so many cute little "basket stuffers" everywhere.  But when I saw these super cute mini gumball machines, I couldn't help myself - I had to buy one of each color. 


There was also a big empty box that had previously been filled with pink machines - but I couldn't find any pink ones anywhere.  I brought them home and sat them in my office - and today I decided they would make cute little gifts ANYTIME of the year - obviously not just for Easter.  They are cute with their little gingham bows, but I wanted to dress them up a little more, so I pulled out some super cute American Crafts products and got busy.
