Okay, I know...I need to do a Christmas post...and I will...but I wanted to share this little project I worked on last week before Christmas. I was contacted by Daily Window and asked to embellish a few of their bags. I thought the product was fun and unique, so I agreed. What I didn't know was how great the quality of the bags would be - seriously, these things are sturdy - and the inside of every one is lime green...so who could resist?!? I actually created three bags, but I'll just share one of them today.
I thought it would be fun to embellish this bag with some holiday stuff I had out (I started working on my journal for my december daily photos so I pulled out everything I had - lots of old Christmas stuff that I loved) - I love love love these older MME products, so I decided to use the cute poem that fit perfectly in the pocket. I added a bit of ribbon, and of course a little jingle bell (because I believe)...and ta da - the perfect little holiday bag to carry around little Christmas activity books for the kids -or my holiday planner...or those cards that needed to be written and addressed...you know, all things holiday!
Now that Christmas is over, I think I'll take out the insert and add something "winterish" like snowflakes or something...and use it to hold things like blank thank you cards, note cards, a planner, my little scriptures, and other things that will be nice to have on-hand when I have a few minutes of down time, or waiting time, or whatever.
There are lots of other fun ideas on the daily window blog - check them out! :o)
