It seems that quite a few of my friends are buying houses this spring. That means that I am always on the hunt for quality housewarming gifts. There are a lot of things out there but I always want something that is not only personal but also practicals.
After I discovered the Scotch-Brite™ Scrubbing Dish Cloth, I have begun using it to create handmade gift bundles with useful kitchen essentials to give as housewarming gifts. This dish cloth is the perfect tool for the kitchen! (But, more on that later.)
In addition, I embellished these bundles with an easy-to-make gift tag.
Making a Die Cut Flower Gift Tag
Since moving is always a fun and exciting time, I decided to embellish my gift tag with some die cut flowers. You will need a few supplies for this including:
- The Petal by Petal paper punch
- Two contrasting pieces of cardstock
- A bookmark
Begin by punching out five sets of petals from each piece of card stock.
Build the petals by gluing the smaller petal to the larger petal. Attach the petals to the bookmark by placing glue near the center of the petal (don’t cover the whole petal if you are going to leave some parts hanging off the edge). Arrange all five petals so that it forms a flower. Do this with both sets.
Glue down any extra pieces that are raising up. Cover with a heavy book to flatten out the flowers.
Punch a hole in the top of the bookmark, thread ribbon through, and attach it to the gift bundle.
See, I told you it was really easy!
Creating a Handmade Housewarming Gift Bundle
I figure my friends can always use utensils such as whisks, scrapers, measuring spoons, a dish towel, and dish cloths.
Speaking of dish cloths, my go-to dish cloth for this bundle is always the Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth. This premium, textured fiber dish cloth features scrubbing dots technology on one side which is perfect for removing baked-on foods which no one wants to have to deal with. No more having to use my nails or a knife to scrape off the food residue!
I love that this dish cloth allows you to do even more aside from just wiping up the stove, table, and counter. In fact, it gives you scrubbing power with the wiping and drying functions of a dish cloth.
Plus it doesn’t scratch any surfaces. The dots scrub but don’t scratch which means that I can use it on pots, pans, or even the glass casserole dish! Plus, when the cloth gets dirty all you have to do is throw it in the washer. It is totally reusable!
While I am partial to the dish cloth, some people are loyal to the scrub sponges. In fact, there is such a division that Scotch-Brite™ has come up with a lighthearted Scrubstakes where you can pick a side and be entered to win a $20,000 kitchen makeover!
Pick up Scotch-Brite™ Scrubbing Dish Cloths as well as Scotch-Brite™ Scrub Sponges in the cleaning isle of your local Walmart.
