I wanted to get my Easter post done today so that I could share the cute bags that are going to my Grandchildren. These bags were made from 2 matching sheets of 12 x 12 designer series paper. For mine, I chose to use the Subtles Designer Paper Stack. The 2 bags below are going to some of my Grandsons. Inside the bag are squirt guns filled with jelly beans – could be a wet Easter fir this Grandma!
Each bag handle is made from 12" of Crushed Curry 3/4" Chevron Ribbon. The handles are reinforced with matching cardstock punched with the 1-3/4" circle punch. After folding them in half, the bag was sandwiched between the two sides of the folded circle. The cute chicks on the front of the bag and the top note cupcake package in the bag were inspired from Connie Stewart.
Bet that you could guess that one of these bags is going to my only Granddaughter. If you guessed that she was getting the purple bag, then you guessed right! The blue bag is for my youngest Grandson. Of course, these contain squirt guns too! In addition, all 4 bags have an old embellishment container that has been repurposed as a little bunny container filled with robins eggs. In order to make Mom & Dad happy, all 4 bags also contain a colorful summer outfit. Maybe they won't mind the squirt guns so much…….
These bags are headed to a sweet little neighbor girl who provides my husband & I with hours of entertainment. Her yard faces our kitchen window and she is definitely an outdoor girl. Little ones can be so entertaining! The other bag is for a little girl who will be spending Easter with my Son and Daughter-In-Law. And, you know what is included in both bags! Yep, squirt guns!
Please have a happy and peaceful Easter filled with all the things that matter. I am taking Easter off but you know that I will post the discontinued list early Monday morning. Remember that Stampin' Up! is offering free shipping from Monday through Friday (the 21st – 25th). I love that because you can order online yourself in order to be sure and get the items you want before they are gone. This list will be Whike Supplies Last. So don't wait because she who snoozes loses!
