Bookmark Gift Bags


Remember those little gift card holders? I sent them to school today with the boys for their teachers.... nothing like the last minute. I've KNOWN forever that today is the last day of school, but do you think I could get it done BEFORE? Story of my life.

Anyway, I got these cute little bags at Walmart. I made some fronts with card stock and the Petals & Paisley Designer Series Paper (sewed together, because I CAN SEW!), and adhered them to the front and the back. Then, used the Word Window punch to punch a slot all the way through the bag to hold the book mark. Added some ribbon to the handle and some chocolate to the inside and DONE. I know I could have made them MORE cute with more stamping or decorations on the front, but I just didn't have the time. I still think they turned out okay and the boys were thrilled to take them to their teachers this morning. Sorry about the photo... it was dark this morning. I was waiting for the clippies to try overnight.

I can't believe another school year is over. Next year, my oldest will go to HIGH SCHOOL, my twins will head to the middle school for fifth grade and Averie will go to Kindergarten for half a day... every day! WOW..... they grow up WAY too fast don't they?

I hope you all have a super day... thanks for stopping by! Now to work on swaps! I'll be working up to the last minute on those too... you watch. LOL

Wow! Those are so cute! I can definitly use that idea. Yes, they grow up so quickly. I have 3 sons ages 17, 18, 19 and the youngest starts his senior year in August. They are a blessing.

Thanks for sharing your incredible work.

Your bags and clippies are really cute! I know what you mean about waiting for the last minute, but you sure can't tell with this project!

Those kids are growing up too fast, I agree!
