'Kawaii' Stickers...

Sorry, My pictures are a little blurry today.... Couldn't use the flash, it was washing everything out.... Can't go outside to take pictures because it's cold, and rainy, and Cold! Where did the nice spring weather go?? Ok, before I get sidetracked on the weather.... Let's see what I did all day yesterday. But, first let me start at the beginning!


I LOVE stickers. Always have. So the other day when I was out looking through Etsy, I came across what people call 'sticker flakes'. I thought they were just too darn cute, so I ordered myself a pack from Cute Paper Ect. I had no idea that they were as small as the were... and I got idea! Gift bags.... In miniature of course!

I just used scrapbooking paper to make the bags, and some ribbon I had in my scrapbox. And I added grommets to hold the ribbon. The pink tissue paper isn't tissue paper, it's the bag that my stickers came in:) It's this really thin plastic with white hearts stamped on it.... I just couldn't throw it away:)
The orange bags have orange tissue paper..... Still have to find my white tissue paper to finish the rest of the bags. And look, there's even one for Easter:)

My favorite's are these little girls....
And this set! As soon as I saw the panda, I thought of Minikat's project. She's been trying to add more pink in the nursery she's building... And I thought this was perfect! Then I realized that I still had the little panda birdhouse in my stash... What a perfect pair! Kat, I will get these in the mail to you sometime this week:)



I used a pattern I made to make the bags... And this time I wanted to backs of the grommets and the ribbon ends to be hidden... When they're not, things get stuck going in and out of the bag... Looks so much better now:)


Whenever the sun decides to come out, some of these will go up in Etsy! They'd be perfect in a teens room... and there's some that would be perfect for a nursery scene!


And before I go... thought I'd share a pic or 2. Here's Wilbur and Cleo napping together. The bf calls Cleo 'mini-Wilbur'..... They're just so cute together!!



Thought this was cute... Walked into the kitchen the other day... And saw this on my oldest son's desk... The babies were staring out the window, until the heard me clicking away on that camera....


Alrighty then.... I'm off to see what I can get into today:)


...until next time....

Great bags and so professionally made. The gromets make a real difference to the look of the bag. Lovely work.
