Nothing says 'party' like gift bags and boxes

I'm getting together with some of my best friends tomorrow.  We're going to scrap a little, laugh a little, spend some quality time with the dogs, and eat a little (?).  I made these gift bags in honor of our time together.

I used and my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the boxes.  Papers used were from a Fancy Pants grab bag purchased on (the 2 on the right).  The paper on the left is MME Nostalgia.  The ribbon tying the left box together is some silk ribbon I won from May Arts.  Other ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM
Here's a closeup of the top of one of the boxes.  I used a Guber and 3 Girl JAM ribbon, finishing it off with an Echo Park brad.

I filled the boxes with chocolate (of course!), a cute snowman nail file and some antibacterial hand lotion.  I hope it will add to the festive atmosphere of our time together.


  1. Wow. Have a really fun time with your friends. I LOVE getting together with my g'friends...only problem is that we eat way too much chocolate!
