Today Tracy over at Craft Junkie Too gave us the choice to design anything we wanted without a specific challenge.
My son's 2nd birthday party is coming up this weekend and I needed some cute goody bags for the fun party favors. So, I purchased some lunch bags to embellish. I figured the extras would be fun to do crafts with my daughter.
I used the Dinosaur from Create a Critter cut at 4 inches and did a lot of embossing. The yellow layer is embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder, his body is embossed with the Mosaic Texture, and his belly is debossed (which just means the impression is going into the paper instead of popping out of it) with the Japanese Scales folder. I added some cute googly eyes as well. Always super easy, and really fun for critters.
The bags all feature different Stampin' Up patterned papers. The color is all the same, but some have dots, leaves, etc.
I attached the dinos with Action Wobbles, which I think is the real treat for the kiddos. The dinos look adorable wobbling back and forth.
I added a strip of cream cardstock toward the bottom of the bag in between fold lines. The phrase was made using my Gypsy to weld together letters from A Child's Year.
To close the bags I folded over the tops & punched 2 holes with the larger setting on my Crop a Dile. Then I threaded some ribbon through the holes.
I'm sure the rest of Tracy's team has lots and lots of wonderful inspiration for you today, so be sure and head over to her blog to check out all the fun. She also has regular linking parties where you can share your own creations and other fun ways to connect and be inspired.
