…instead of buying the decorated Dollar Tree gift bags, you buy plain white so you can decorate them yourself!!
So there is A LOT going on here. LOL. First I started with the soon to be retiring Tranquil Tulips and stamped each bag using mostly soon to be retiring colors. These bags don’t lay perfectly flat so there was some imperfect stamping. Not only that, they are coated, which made them dry slower. To hide my “oops” i just re-stamped a few and fussy cut them and laid them over the not as pretty blooms but raised with dimensional.
I stamped the Jar from Jar of Love which I’m SO happy will be with us another year. I stamped the image on retiring DSP and then used the matching framelit and popped it up with dimensional. But not before tying some jute twine around the jars lip.
I also used that same DSP to make a tag using the Sweet Cake Framelits, also staying! The names were white heat embossed using the NEW Make a Difference stamp set. Since the tag was made with 2 sided DSP and was hanging, i cut a Whisper White Tag and just added it to the back. Now if it flips it’s just white like the bag 🙂
This is where the “i May have too much time on my hands” comes in. I used the dots from Dragonfly Dreams to decorate the edge of my tissue paper!
I loved the added touch! So what did I put in these bags for my grandgirlies mommies? I made them each a shirt, because i am so much more than a card maker (because I have a lot of time on my hand!)
They say “Just another Manic Mom-day”. Being mom to a toddler can definitely make you want to pull your hair out sometimes! I thought the saying was very appropriate for this stage of motherhood!
Aren’t these girls the cutest? I may be a bit partial because I’m their Oma, but I do love them with all my ❤
I didn’t stop there, with my grandgirlies help, we made them shrinky dink hand prints their Mommies can add to their key fobs. Of course I had to make teeny tiny boxes to add the teeny tiny hands too!
I almost forgot! The #BESTMOM was stamped using the new Stamparatus. The 2 plates made this so easy to stamp a duplicate bag! Watch for a video soon!
Do you stamp everything you see? Let me know in the comments, I can’t be the only one with too much time on my hands!!!!!
