Happy Birthday~Gift Bag

Wow, it's Friday tomorrow already!! Where has the week gone?? Is it just me or is everyone else busy too? I have a busy weekend planned. My class Reunion is this weekend so we will be going out of town for a couple days. I am actually looking forward to visiting with my high school friends. Should be a fun time:) Then, Sunday we have to take a quick spin to the airport to take my son back who will be going back to New York :(  I love it when he is home~He usually gets home a couple times a yr so I am grateful for that!

This project is a another gift bag that I made for a upcoming birthday for my friends daughter. I just love making these bags. I cut this cute Hippo from the Birthday Bash cartridge at 5" plus the layers. The birthday hat at 2 1/4 (real dial) which I embossed with divine swirls and used glossy accents on the layers.  I cut the frame from Accent Essentials cartridge at 4 1/4 and embossed with the divine swirls folder and sanded it a bit for a different look.

The topper is 5 1/2 x 7 folded in half and then I used a Martha Stewart punch to create a pretty border. The Happy Birthday is cut at 2 1/2 from the Elegant Cakes cartridge. The sentiment~It's yarr Birthday is from Scrappy Moms Stamps ~Designers Choice. I hope you are inspired to make a gift bag. They are really easy and everyone needs a gift bag on hand, right?

  3. TOO TOO Cute !! I love how you decorated this bag....just adorable ! Thanks for the info on Campin Critters. I found a cheap place online, but I wanted it in my hands...yesterday!! I bought Kates ABC's instead and I gotta tell ya, I'm not sure I am going to like it. Too many of the images are attached to other images. I dont like that too much. Now looking at this bag...I NEED Birthday Bash ! lol
