Hi everyone, and happy Monday to you! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had a lovely and lazy time, and even managed to get my first sunburn of the year. Guess I don’t know what to do with this warm weather called spring anymore, it being so foreign and all.
This ended up being a pretty big weekend for us. We had a bit of a birthday celebration for Nik on Friday night, and then the really big part…..we pulled the trigger and signed college acceptance forms for Mr. Pete. I am now the parent of an official college student. Go Spartans!
Today I have a fun treat bag to share with you that I made for the Authentique blog. Recently, the team was given templates from Kiwi Lane to play with, and I used both their tags and scalloped border templates for my project, along with Authentique’s beautiful Hope collection.
Here you can get a really good view of all those yummy scallops. I simply cut strips of patterned papers, traced either the large or small scallop template, cut, and layered to cover the front of my bag. The Kiwi Lane templates are easy to use and are a great alternative for those without a die cutting system. Way less expensive, too.
Tied my handmade parchment paper goody bag with seam binding and added a quick tag made from the Kiwi Lane templates. A few Hope cardstock stickers and vintage buttons add the final touch.
For more ideas using Kiwi Lane, stop by the Authentique blog. Be sure to leave a comment while you are there for your chance to win this great prize package. Winners will be announced at the end of the month.
Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends! Wishing you all a wonderful day!
