Hi everyone, and welcome back to Day Four of sneak peeks at My Creative Time! It’s the last day of sneak peeks today, and we have one last birthday set to share with you. This time, a super cute mini gift bag die and coordinating birthday stamps called Chalkboard Birthday.

This adorable shopping bag gift bag is the perfect size for packaging small gifts or treats, and makes a wonderful money or gift card holder. Love it for birthdays, paired with the matching stamps from the set, but how cute would this be for graduation, too? I’ve got one of those coming up in my house in just a few short weeks, and this little gift bag is going to come in mighty handy.

I’ve got the perfect little gift to fit in my bag, for my wee Missy Nik who is graduating from high school this year. So I’ve made this bag in honor of her, from a favorite sweet gingham print and lots of soft, pretty colors. The celebrate banner and candles have been stamped on light pink patterned paper, and watercolored with Distress inks. They are from two different images that I combined with a bit of masking, and then fussy cut to layer on a Scalloped Stitched Oval die cut. The tiny stars are from a third chalkboard image that were selectively stamped onto the background. I added Stickles glitter and Glossy Accents to the candle flames for a bit of shimmer and shine.
