I couldn't resist making a tutu cake to go along with the ballerina theme! I didn't give out gift bags, so I used the little tags as decoration on the cake instead:
Kristine also offers lots of other themes, from cowboys, to pirates, to princesses. She also makes invitations and accessories for baby and bridal showers.
A little info about Kristine and her shop, Kristine's Creations:
"My name is Kristine and I live in beautiful San Diego. I have a wonderful husband and two great kids. I have always had a love of making handcrafted gifts. As a young child I loved to cross stitch, making pictures for my family. After I had children, I began painting. I found it a very creative outlet. I started scrapbooking 10 years ago, making albums for family and friends. With the creativity involved in designing scrapbook pages, it seemed natural to branch out into making cards. I started making cards to give to family and friends for special occasions. From there it grew to designing invitations. My friends and family loved my designs and thought I should try selling my work, which is how Kristine's Creations was started. I love having the opportunity to share my work with others on Etsy."
Kristine is hosting a giveaway of one of her ballerina matted prints. This would be perfect for any little girl's room:
