Everyday is an Occasion Blogiversary Hop!!!

Hi everyone!


Welcome and thanks for joining us today for an extra fabby time :) today are celebrating the Super duper sweet Jill's (Everyday is an Occasion) blogiversary! One year of fabulous projects, tips, & ideas! Thanks Jill for hosting and inviting me once again :)


We are celebrating with a fun hop and giving you lots of birthday inspiration :) I have fallen in love with all the fun little bags to hold small treats, glassine, chevron, polka dots, etc.... I thought I would create my own out of paper I have on hand. Yes, no new products were purchased for these fun bags:) when I first started collecting paper ( I just say that I'm a collector, sounds better than hoarder, paper obsessed, maniac, etc....) I would buy these fun packs that were not card stock weight. That's all I used. Then all the paper companies started coming out with card stock paper and I was hooked! So I have so much paper:) well all those packs of thinner paper is absolutely perfect for this project! Also great for envelopes too!

Here's what I have for you
I went with a Hawaiian theme and made goodie bags for a birthday party! I started with a 9x6 piece of paper. Scored it at 2" on each side of the 9" length side.. Which should leave you with a 5" bag. Just use some strong adhesive to seal the back and bottom. You can just seal the bottom or fold the bottom. I then simply cut the top with fun scissors.


Fill them up with some yummy candies, tie it with some twine and seal it with a fun decorative clothes pin:)


For the labels you can easily stamp a fun birthday sentiment or leave them blank so you can personalize them for your party guests!!!

All in all a pretty simple project that can be made by a beginner or an expert.

So now for the real fun!! Jill went to Summer CHA this year and gathered some goodies to giveaway to all of you. Please be sure to enter the rafflecopter below!




Okay, so now hop along and see what these fabulous ladies have for you, no doubt it's wonderful!!! Next up on the list is one of my SWEETEST bloggy friends and SUPER Talented
