It’s in the Bag!!

I love jazzing and “Cute”ing up ordinary things – I was looking through my birthday card box, seems I am getting low on cards!! But in my looking, I came across a stack of these white paper sacks that I had covered with paper, added a flap to close, and put this boy diecut on to cute it up! Loved the colors and the diecuts were cheap since I had bought a package of them at a warehouse sale! It caused me to grin from ear to ear because I had in my hand a way to remember a birthday beautifully!!

A view of the bag - this is how it looks when the flap is sealed down on the front!

I started making these years ago but because of all the fussy cutting I put them in a project to-do pile.

Here is a view of all the fussy cutting I was talking about around the words!!

Which of course got lost in all the disarray of my craft room.  So when I re-organized and revamped my craft room I stumbled across these and decided it was time they were finished.  When I was done doing all the cutting, then layering, and then cutting out again of all the words for the sentiment – I put them on the bag with pop dots!  I was thrilled because now I had 12 or more little bags to remember someone’s birthday with!! Guess what I discovered – a cupcake from my local cupcake store fit perfectly inside!  I am so excited to have this project done and have all these bags at my disposal.

Maybe you, like me, have an unfinished project somewhere that you could dig out and work on!! And bonus, maybe also like me, you find something you can use to add Beauty to someone else’s life.  So go ahead – find an unfinished project and give it a whirl – It just might add beauty to yours or someone else’s day!!

    How cute is this? I love how you “shopped” in your old stash to make this card. When you don’t see things for a while, they become new again. Really, really adorable card!!
