Gift bags

18 Jan

So either I have a cold or I have the worst allergies ever.  I can’t tell.  It started off really differently from a traditional cold so I’m hopeful that it’s just allergies.  Which is really possible because on MLK day Sean and I raked leaves, cleaned the gutters, and probably stirred up all kinds of allergens.  Sean even climbed a tree to get on top of our roof since we don’t have a ladder. 

See?  Crazy.

But, the point of this post is not to talk about my allergies/cold or cleaning gutters, it’s to talk about the gift bags I made for my sister’s baby shower.  So, I went to Michael’s with an idea of what I wanted and just started looking down the aisles.  I stumbled on some blue gift bags, Martha Stewart stickers and the tiniest clothespins I have ever seen.

The stickers came in a variety of items, not just elephants as is my theme.   But, they were just too cute so I couldn’t leave them out.  And, the “Thanks so much” stamp was something I already had from Impress  So,  I just put them together and got this:

So there you have it, my little thank you bags.  Now I just need to fill them.  What would you want in your bag?

    Um…hi, delurking here. 🙂 I came her via Weddingbee.

    If I were filling these, I’d try to find some yummy smelling lotions or mini candles. Maybe some lip balm or lip gloss. Or you could make (buy?) some tasty cookies or treats. I hope you share what you ultimately decide on with us.

    Super cute! If I were a guest, I’d love to seem them filled with a yummy home baked treat (chocolate chip cookies, perhaps?) and maybe a nice purse-sized hand cream (something that I keep trying to remember to buy for myself, but always forget).

    I just stumbled across your blog and I love, love, love it! I’m planning a baby shower for my sister as well, and these gift bags are perfect inspiration. Would you mind if I posted a picture of yours on my blog (in a post about baby shower inspiration) and linked back to you? If not, that’s fine too! Just wanted to check first.

      Aww thanks! And of course you can blog about it. Best of luck with planning the shower!
