Chevron Favor Bags

HEY!  I know, I know....I've been gone.  I've left ya hanging....
without explanation.  But life blew up on me.  

In the past 2 weeks, I've had 4 funerals, 1 graduation party that I took over and created all of the decorations for (my BFF's dad died the week she was having her daughter's graduation party!) and a bridal shower that I did some crafty things for - as seen above!  Plus school functions and baseball practice....  This stay-at-home mom has been anything but!  Today I'm home.  Finally.  One full day home.  My agenda is still chaotic - laundry (ugh!), a garden to plant, some signs to make that I sold on my etsy shop, a class to prep for and a craft room that needs some serious attention.  It's a disaster.

So, let's focus on some cheerful things, ok?

I created some favor bags for a recent bridal shower we had for my sister-in-law.  I think they turned out super cute - I did 2 different styles - today I'm showing you my favorite one.

I stamped some black cardstock with a retired stamp (that I don't dare part with cuz I really love it!).  I used the Gold Encore ink.  I used the Dotted Scallop Border punch with some Gold Foil paper to anchor the bottom.  Added half of a paper doily, and that was it for the base of my chevron favor bag.

The flower is a mix of flowers from the Fun Flower Die, and the Petite Pansy Punch.  Stacked them and glued them, then added a black button that's tied up with some gold baker's twine (*swoon*)!

I made 10 of this style, then we filled them with yummy chocolates.  Everyone loved them.

Would you like some of these bags?  I'm putting them up on my Etsy Shop!
