I had a baby shower to go to the other day and no wrap or bag to put the gift in, so I decided to make my own bag following the tutorial posted here at the "Inking Addicts" blog. It was so fun! I went through my stash of old scrapbook paper and found the perfect thing to use. This paper is covered in the word "daughter" in every language imaginable. I decided to fold over the top and added a cardstock flap. Then I used my Crop-a-Dial to punch holes for the ribbon and added some jumbo eyelets. Chocolate Chip ribbon finished off the whole project.Did you notice the cupcake bouquet in the background? I helped plan two baby showers this week and made a cupcake bouquet for each one. Both moms used brown as one of their colors--paired with light green for one mom and light blue for the other. I was excited to have the chance to try making the bouquet ever since I had seen it demonstrated at a church enrichement night. Here's a closer picture of the bouquet:
I painted the pot and stamped it with brown craft ink (I don't know what brand) and Whisper White Craft ink. The stamp set was one of the $1 sets from Michaels. I love the little baby face and teddy bear!
