Whew!!!

Is anybody else feeling some of this rush?? I think I need some much needed chill time wrapping some presents...oh wait...I guess I need to FINISH the presents if I want to wrap them, no? Dilemma.

On the other hand, my little girl had 2 birthday parties for 3 girls 2 weeks ago. Um, has anybody checked out the stores lately?? That would cost us at least $30, before tax, for a very simple gift. So I opted for lovely handmade out of the stash with purchased crayons and coloring books, costing us a mere $7. Score.


For easy and simplicity in the making process, these bags ware not lined and the handle is a simply grosgrain ribbon. The bag is made to perfectly fit a handful of coloring books and ten beautiful crayons.

Nice! From my own experience, there are few things a girl loves more than a new bag;). Good call.

These are fabulous! And I have to say--I love the sticker placement! That's my favorite price on coloring books, too! :) I'm going to use your little trick now and give them as part of my gifts!

We have a multitude of little cousins around here - I made these as Christmas gifts, stuffed with dollar store coloring books and all I had to buy was one large pack of Crayolas. These were a hit! Thanks for the idea!
