Mother's Day Gift Bags

Hello to all my blogging friends!
Who has had their computer crash on them before??
My laptop took a dive on me on Monday - ugh. 
It is back for the moment, but it will not last long. 
Gonna have to suck it up an go shopping for a new one
I guess. bleah.

Today I want to share a super simple project I made for 
Glue Dots®. I was in the The Crafty Scrapper last
month and I saw these cute little bags from
Pebbles Inc. I just had to have them. I had no purpose for
them, but you know that never stops us!

Cute, yes?
The good folks over at Glue Dots® sent me some super cute paper from Bella BLVD in my last box and I thought it would look super cute for spring time. 
I cut the base piece just slightly smaller than the bag, applied Continuous Glue Lines® across 
the top and the bottom and adhered to the front of the bag. 

I wanted my washi tape to be opaque so I applied it to white cardstock that I had cut to 
width, wrapping the ends around the back. Trim the excess white away. 
I cut another piece the same width, punched both edges and used
 Ultra Thin Glue Dots® to adhere.
I used XL Glue Dots® to secure my layered flowers to the front of my bag.
I finished up with buttons from Bella BLVD, using Craft Dots® to adhere, 
folded the top of the bag over, punched two holes and tied a ribbon. 

These bags are just big enough to hold a small treat, a gift card,
or a nice lipstick - which is what went in mine!

Thank so much for stopping by today!

I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots design team.
