How to make a cool summer Hostess Gift with Bowdabra

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a quick and fun Summer Hostess Gift made special with the addition of a Bowdabra bow.  It’s summertime and it is the perfect time for picnics, bar-b-cues and beach fun.  Nothing says summer more than a pail and shovel.  If you are heading off to a party, just put some fun goodies inside and take the pail with you for the hostess, presenting it to her as a Summer Hostess Gift.
