Revamped Wedding Gift

One of the big reasons we came to Texas was because one of my husband's family friends is having his wedding reception here. So of course that introduced the problem of getting a wedding present taken care of before we left for Texas. 

My husband found this Fourth of July dish holder at Wal-Mart on sale for $9! It's so cute but I did NOT want to give it to them in the Fourth of July-ness that it was currently in. PLUS, it came with a Pyrex dish inside. What an awesome deal!


With some super cute Michael Miller fabric and a ruffle border, the top looks so much better!


Not only that, I tweaked the Pyrex dish to personalize it for the couple. Once again, ETCHING! I love glass etching.


I hope they like it. You never know if you don't personally know the bride, but at least it'll be useful!
