Happy Mother’s Day Gift Bag with Fancy Favor!

By | 04/27/2013

Featured Retired Products:  Fancy Favor Bigz Die, Extra Large Tag Punch, Tea for Two Designer Series Paper, Pop-Up Posies Kit, and the Wonderful Mother Stamp Set

I planned ahead for Mother’s Day this year.  I know!  I shocked myself!  I usually realize that, “Mother’s Day is tomorrow!”,  before I come up with a plan.  Since my mother lives 500 miles away, this never really works out for her.  She rarely gets her gift on time.  I’m pretty sure that a cheerful phone call isn’t what she’s hoping for!  Although, she never seems disappointed with a cheerful phone call!

This year, I actually shopped for the gift and created the bag and the card.  Tomorrow I will be packing it up to get it in the mail.  I am absolutely certain that my mother will be stunned when a gift arrives ahead of the big day!

fancy_favor_bigz_dieI used several products to make the card and the bag that are on the retiring lists!  What will I do without my Fancy Favor XL Bigz Die?  I use that for every holiday and gift giving event.  To create this bag, I used two Fancy Favor pieces put together.  The base is made from Very Vanilla card stock and the top is made from the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.

Here is the list of retiring products that I used to create this:

Stamp Set:  Wonderful Mother (#126507)

Papers: Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (#129311)

Accessories:  Extra Large Tag Punch (#119866), Pop Up Posies Designer Kit (#131395)

Materials not retiring:  Scallop Oval Punch (119856), Large Oval Punch (#119855), Very Vanilla 12 x 12″ Card Stock #124301), Tangerine Tango card stock and ink, Calypso Coral ink, Rhinestones, and the  Big Shot (#113439)

Don’t miss out on that Fancy Favor Bigz Die!  It was such a great purchase for me.  It’s really wonderful as a favor bag for holidays and parties.  It’s a great little gift bag and it works beautifully for gift cards.  It’s also a pretty little bag to fill with candy to sit on your desk!  It’s a breeze to cut and fold a quick little bag because the die not only cuts, it scores.
