Baby Gift Bags

Happy weekend! Before I share my gift bags today, I wanted to share this sweet photo of Nolan and Grandpa on N's bday. The older my son gets, he hates to take photos, except with Grandpa. He knows how important it is to take these precious photos. He told me that he doesn't like me posting photos on my blog because one day when he was out with his dad, someone told him that she saw his photo on my blog, he kind of freaked out that someone recognized him. Okay, so if you see him at the mall or someplace, do not tell him I posted this photo! LOL!On to my project. Today, I'm sharing the 2 gift bags that we made using regular paper lunch bags that I cut off 6 1/4" from the open end. The two cardstock pieces are 5 1/2" X 6 1/2" and 5 1/2" X 8 1/2", score the larger piece at 6 1/2" to form the front flap. Adhere the cardstock to the front and back of the paper bag and voila! a giftbag! The scallop circle we are using is the cut out from the shaker card. The background was stamped with stamps from the Enjoy Every Moment stamp set.
Here's a side view of the bag
and a view of the bag from the top

Here's the boy version. The background was stamped with stamps from the Circle Circus set in Night of Navy and Creamy Caramel. I used Soft Suede grosgrain ribbon and a circle cut using not quite navy CS.
Busy weekend! Taking Dad for a check up and then house chores and finishing up those kits!!! I'm so sorry it's taking me so long to finish them...they will be in the mail next week!
Thanks for visiting me today. I'll be posting a fun birthday card I made using my cricut and the adhesive craft paper by 3M.
