I will share a weekend recap once I have time to upload some pictures. Today, I thought I'd share the graduation goodie bags I made for all of the party guests. This project really only took a couple of hours to complete. I did need to buy stickers, specialty card stock, ribbon, paper bags, glue dots and candy. I already had the round stamp punches, regular card stock, stamps and inkpads. Luckily Michael's was having a big sale plus an additional 15% off your entire purchase.
For the ribbon design, I just used letter stamps to write "Congrats Ana" and added a graduation owl sticker to the center. I used two sized circle punches and then added ribbon to make it look like a medal. The other design is just a "Class of 2013" sticker added to the circle and ribbon wrapped around the bag.
I added Smarties to the candy mix because I thought it was a cute way to say Ana is a smartie for graduating. I also found mints wrapped in a graduation design (I found these at The Dollar Tree, but I also saw bigger packs at Hobby Lobby for $3.99).
This picture was taken before I added the ribbon to the top of the bags. Sorry, but I forgot to get a picture of the finished product. I just punched two holes in the top of the bags, added blue and white ribbon, and tied it in a bow on the front side. Cute!
