We had a very busy weekend. Everyone going this way and that. My middle daughter celebrated her birthday. She wanted a bowling party this year. We invited boys and girls. I needed to make the treat bags with items appropriate for all.
I decided to use small brown paper sacks (which I purchased at Sam's Club) as the base. I cut a scalloped circle from white cardstock and the circle from red cardstock that I embossed with Cuttlebug folder for some texture. I wanted to simulate the wood texture of a bowling lane, but I do not own a wood grain embossing folder. I used a sticker as a template to trace my bowling pins (I used two layers, sticking together with foam tape). I hand drew black outline of the pin. I used scor tape to add the red ribbon embellishment at top of pin. The bowling ball was a 1 and one quarter inch circle (one black, one white). I added small holes with Crop- a- dile for finger holes. I adhered the layers with foam tape. I coated the top of ball with Glossy accents. I made the girl bowling balls pink and the boy bowling balls black.
I used mini composition books for the boys and cut white circle and stamped the Boy Basics: Out of this World set, PTI. I colored the rocket and flame with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the rocket, moon and star. I used foam tape to adhere these elements.
My son made each of the boys a beadie baby. These are his own creations, because he did not consult a pattern. My son also made a wrist watch out of beads (not shown).
I hand sewed pencil topper for each of the girls. These were from an AG kit. They turned out so cute. In each goodie bag was a coordinating pencil and notebook. For the girls I found these cute glittered spiral notebooks to which I added the foam flowers. The kids also received a fruit roll up, pack of gum and pack of life savers at my dd request. These were fun to put together. Thanks for stopping by and looking. I would love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
