I made these goodie bags for my hubby's co-workers. The cello bags are from Stampin Up (4x6), gives you enough room for some candies & to be able to close & fold over the tops. After putting in the candies I sealed the tops & flipped the top over just a little to keep it closed while I was cutting the cardstock & printed paper. I used some left over cardstock that I used for my best friends baby shower invites forever & a day ago & the printed paper is something that I got at Joann's & had never used it. I cut the cardstock at 4 x 3.25 (I belive...sorry forgot to write it down was just going by how it looked). I cut the paper the same size & used a fiskers borderpunch around both sides so you can see a bit of the cardstock. I adhered the printed paper to the cardstock using mono-adhesive & adhered the cardstock to the cello bags with thin glue dots. The heart was cut out from doodlecharms at 2" & I ran them threw my Xyron 9" sticker maker (I found doing this makes it alot easier when glittering). I covered the hearts in a thicker glitter that I had in my stash. I am finally using all the stuff that I had got way back when I didn't have time to use it, forgot about it, then found it & got all happy. Yes I am odd, lol.
On another note I have been studying alot since I am taking my accounting class online & am very focused. I had 2 quizzes & an exam to be turned in by 2/10 & am extremely happy to say that I got 100 on ALL 3!!! I am sooooo excited about that, hopefully I can keep up the good work with school with all the craziness of life going on. I am very thankful to my husband & Robyn for constantly telling me that I can do this. They both have/had more confidence in me than I had in myself. Since I got the scores that I wanted & pushed myself so hard to get my confidence (schoolwise) is growing each time I get those great grades! If your still reading by now...thanks & I hope that you enjoy my goodie bags. This was my first time making them...I think they turned out pretty good. Hope you all have a wonderful day =)
