My 'little' brother turned 30 last week.  To welcome to him to the world of 30 somethings, I dusted off my poor neglected Silhouette and made this:

I started out with a Target dollar spot bucket (anytime I see them, I load up for such occasions). 

Then I cut out the sentiment (heh heh) from black contact-paper vinyl and stuck it on the bucket:

Filled it up with 30 Tootsie Roll pops

And ta-da

Simple and effective :)

I love this idea, nice and easy but packs a punch as well. Those are the best gift ideas! I'm a new follower from the Embellishing Life link party.
