♥ party goodie bags, tags & a card ♥

Good morning everyone!  it's my day on the MME blog and i was excited to share one of my favorite things to create when we get ready to celebrate a party at the house....goodie bags and goodie straws.  I don't like to purchase the themey ones because the kids seem to just crumple them up quickly or leave them behind, but every time I create their own personal little goodie bags filled with a fun treat they get really excited.

For today's post, I created tags for goodie straws and some goodie bags to place some fun little "finds" in.  I try to buy my "goodie bags" on clearance when I see sales at Target and Dept. Stores, because they are so fun to "pretty up" with MME papers and embellies later.

First, I cut the ribbons from the bags.  They had cute pink ribbons that would be fine for my daughter's parties with friends, but I decided twine and MME supplies would make them a whole lot cuter for their get together, more girly, feminine and just plain fun.

Then, I created tags for each one of the hard plastic straws.  I like to create little tags because they look so cute on the straws and you could easily dress up a place setting with just a tag.

 As you can see, in no time at all (using MME supplies I had on hand) I had a set of straws and goodie bags ready for my daughter's next little get together. It's always better to drink Strawberry Fizzies out of a fancy straw! ;)

Supplies:The Sweetest Thing: 6 x 6 pad, Happy title, Wood and Chip buttons, Decorative Brads, Together Decorative Tape, Together stickers, Misc: Cuttlebug butterfly die, heart doily, Cameo cut-file sentiments

also, i posted my first card class using the August The Story Begins Kit at Scraptastic Kit Club
