Fun and Games Bouquet

I created this cute centerpiece using the Party Games papers and embellishments. It would brighten any “Game Night” party.

Treat Bag

When I visit my family and friends, I like to surprise them with a little treat. Simple, old-fashioned candy gets glamorous when packaged in an embellished, cellophane gift bag.

Girly Gift Bag

There’s nothing I enjoy more than a well-wrapped gift. Sometimes I get so excited about a beautifully wrapped gift, that I almost hate to unwrap it. To make unique gift bags, I save bags from stores. I cover the logo with goodies from my studio stash. For this Girly Gift Bag, I used the Dimestore Vogue papers and embellishments and the Family Fun Paper Kit. I even used the crepe paper that comes in the paper kits as tissue paper inside the bag! The Family Fun Paper kit has paper dolls of men and children, so you can make a gift bag that would please anyone!

Thank you so much Laura for joining us this month and for sharing such great, fun ideas!
