blog tag

i have 2 projects to share today – fun, very simple goody bags i made for the last swap i am signed up for:

get well goodies:

i cut the top piece from patterned paper.  then i cut out the dandelion (appropriate at this time of year i thought!)  i cut both the main shape and the shadow.  then i dabbed mustard seed distress stickles on the little round ends of each *petal*.  the sentiment is from inkdinkado and is stamped on a cricut cut from Storybook as well.  this cut has a base and then a matching frame.  i attached them with scortape to the little bags.  Inside is a mini pack of tissues, hand sanitizer and some blistex lip balm – i strongly encourage you to raid the $1 bins at target and Ms as well as the trial sizes aisle at walmart!

next up – birthday goody bags:

This little set has a birthday tag i made completely from the Sweet Treats cricut cartridge.  this cartridge has LOADS of different tag options and then loads more images to use as the main piece!

i put a little note set in each of these with different stylish chicks on them – another $1 find – this one at Ms – and SO CUTE!

i hope all the girls i am swapping with like these!!!

and now we are off to the nursery – apparently my daughter needs something there….

have a spectacular weekend!!!

better blog siggy
