Made By Me Monday

A week before Charlie arrived my office threw me a potluck shower. I felt funny not contributing, so I made some little "cigars" for everyone to have.

These were made with:
10 packs of Rolos
Slightly sparkly brown and gold paper
Pink yarn
Paper Tags
Pink Marker

I just wrapped the Rolos in the brown paper and glued the seam, then cut out a little band from the gold paper and glued that on too. Then I tied a piece of yarn with a paper tag saying "It's a Girl!" around the middle and put them all in a cigar box. Presto! Inexpensive festive shower treat.


  1. Hahaha. This is a great idea! I am also having a work potluck shower and I also feel wierd about not bringing anything. This is a great idea! Call me a copy cat!

    Sidenote: I actually have the leftover cigars my dad passed out from when I was born. How cool is that?!?
