Blossom Party Big Shot Die Gift Bag


If you are a Facebook Fan (click here to visit), you would have seen the cards that Eva made last month for her friends’ birthdays.  Between my 3 girls, we had about 15 birthday party invitations.  Wowsas!  That puts a pinch on the wallet, and really works out the Mom Taxi Service.

Luckily, my girls love to craft and they make the cards and even decorate the gift bags.  You know Stampin’ Up’s In Color Line has Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo, but did you know Target has those 2 colors in TISSUE PAPER!!??  That sure made it a snap to get Kraft Gift Bags and make a quick, coordinating bag for the gift.

Eva and I cut out a bunch of flowers from the Blossom Party Big Shot Die and she went to town!  This bag is her creation!  And if you’re a new blog reader of mine….Eva is FIVE.  She did a great job, didn’t she?

Stayed tuned…next month you will see more of the Blossom Party Die, and club gals, you’ll be playing with it!  Want to join one of my clubs?  Details here for Local Club and Online Club.
