I'M BAAAACK...PARTY BAG

Party On!!!!
 
LOOK, I CAN STILL CRAFT... I'm back from Europe and trying to adjust after an 8 hour time difference!  I'm so tired...
 
It's my son's birthday party this weekend so I had to make some gift bags!  With the help of my GF's...THANK YOU!  I yawned through the whole cutting, embossing and building of them;)
 
These are small bags and fit a pack of gum and $10 gift card, perfect!  For the bag I used Tim Holtz In the Bag die and borrowed the strip die Washer Border for the handle. 

Look what I picked up at 40% off, TH Pocket Envelope...fits gift cards perfectly!  And much prettier than the envelopes you get with a gift card:)

I marked and punched where I wanted the brads to go then added the twine.  For the bottom brad that goes into the pocket you'll need a paper piercer.

I also picked up the Movers and Shapers Cargo Stencil Number set for 40% off.  I LOVE THIS FONT!  My son is turning 11 so I thought this might be fun on the pocket envelopes...if I had more time!

I embossed the front of the bag with the TH Gear folder and layered on the small movers and shapers gears to add some pop!  This ties in with my sons birthday invitations, click HERE to see them.

This bag is compact and fun!

Because I am pressed for time having just returned from Paris.  I opted to simply stamp the pocket envelopes.  Even though I wanted to use the cargo numbers I showed above. 

I used Scrappy Moms Stamps Hooray for Birthday's set, "For You and PARTY" stamps.  Lining them both on my block and stamping with Archival Black.  I love this stamp set!  One of my favorite SMS sets!

In total I made 12 bags with the help of my 2 crafty friends.  It's nice to be home, with my kids, baking and crafting.

A GOOD TIP; Glue one side of the washer border handle until you can fill the bag.  This way you aren't trying to force the goodies in.  Once the bag has been filled simply glue the other side using the sticky red strip tape:0)
