Quick & Easy Birthday gift on the fly.

Posted by Michelle on June 12th, 2012 . Filed under: Birthday, Design Team Work, Gift Packaging, May Arts, Whisker Graphics .

When we got home from our Hawaiian cruise, there was an invitation waiting for a birthday party that weekend.  It’s one of the girls from my daughter’s soccer team and she really likes this particular little girl so not going to the party was not an option.  I didn’t have time to shop or make something, so I turned to my couponing stash to see what I had.  Gummi bears (I buy a lot of candy on the cheap or free as it’s a great birthday gift add-on), some free girly hair things from Walgreens, and some Smashbox lip gloss (Tuesdays & Thursdays they have a promo where you get a free full-size item with any order).

I chose a couple of fun party bags from Whisker Graphics and matched them with some equally fun ribbons from May Arts.

I decorated one bag with patterned paper, chipboard, and stickers, and then layered it on top of an undecorated party bag and then tied them together with ribbn at the top.

I stamped on a pre-made tag to personalize it, and we were party-ready!

    […] Alright – first up are 19-cent Jolly Rancher candies at Albertsons.  Doubling these coupons at Walmart would have made them free, however I have not been able to find them in stock.  So I doubled the coupon at Albertsons and got these cheap enough.  I love having candy on hand to add to kid birthday presents.
