Mother's Day Gifts - Wallet Card & Treat Bag

Hi Everyone!!  I created a few more projects for Mother's Day.  First is the wallet card that Juliana inspired me to create.  She has a tutorial on making these.  If you are interested I'll post the link below.  Second, is the Treat Bag/Goodie Bag and it also has a tutorial that I will post the link for as well.  A video is included at the bottom if you are interested in watching.

The Wallet Card

For the wallet cards I started off with white card stock from Recollections, then layered the paper collection My Favorite Things by Recollections on the blue and green cards.  On the green card, I used the Cheery Lynn Designs, Queen Ann's Lace border die as well as the olive branches die and a crystal spray from Michael's found in the wedding section and then tied a bow with lace from my stash.  The flowers that I used on all of the cards were from I Am Roses and some that I punched out.  All of the cards also have a beaded trim around the top of the card.  The blue wallet card has the Cheery Lynn Design Fanciful Flourish, Martha Stewart leaf punch and border punch.  A bow is tied with white satin ribbon.  The black and cream card is created using cream card stock on the bottom then layering the Fashionista paper collection by Graphic 45 on top.  The Martha Stewart border punch and Fanciful Flourish is used on this card as well.  A bow is created using cream satin ribbon.  All of the wallet cards are basically the same with the exception of the black and cream card, which is larger.  On the inside, all 3 cards have pockets to add gift cards, a small note or card, or a sentiment of your choice.  I also used digi images from a Etsy seller for the tags and will post the link to her store below also.

Goodie Bag/Treat Bag

Jo from Paper Drama (youtube) inspired me to created these.  They were super easy to make!!  The goodie bags were created using the following paper collections:  Fairy Belle by Prima, La Creme' by DCWV.  I started off with a 4 x 6 piece of designer paper.  I won't go into detail on how to make these as I will post the link to the tutorial.  I adhered trims and laces to the bottom of the bags, used the Martha Stewart leaf punch for the leaves, used the flower punch from EK Sucess for the flowers and one small I Am Roses flower on each project, incorporated black and pink satin ribbon at the top of the bags.  On the pink bag I used a chipboard die that I purchased with the designer paper to adhere Happy Mother Day, and created the Happy Mother's Day on my computer on the black and cream bag.  Each bag was topped off with beaded trim.  I also used white paint on the pink flower and green leaves.   I used gold metallic ink on the black rose and black leaves.  Sequin trim was also added along the black lace at the bottom of the bag and a black bow tie from a Martha Stewart punch was added at the top of the bag.  I hope you like these projects as they were so much fun to make!!  Hope you make some as well.  They would make great little gifts for that special someone anytime of the year.  If you have any questions please let me know.  Thanks for looking!!
