Miles Above The Rest

My youngest daughter is in high school and while she doesn't have the big class parties anymore, she does like to give small treats to a few friends. I was downstairs in my stamp room over the weekend trying to brainstorm something that was cute but not cutesy. This is what I came up with.
I took a 3 1/2 x 2 inch paper bag and cut the top off with a zig zag die. I added some red and black cardstock and then used some My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Union Station patterned papers. I used my new Sizzix embossing folder on the red circle and then got to work on the bunny. I love this bunny and the sentiments that came with the set--perfect for lots of occasions. I colored the bunny with copies and then paper pieced his parachute with more of the Union Station papers. I stamped the sentiment and then cut it out with a First Place Ribbon Die from My Favorite Things. To finish it off I added some silver gems on the bottom and tied the bag shut with some baker's twine and a button (a la Jen Del Muro). I think these will be perfect for my daughter to fill with a few chocolates and give to a few special friends.
Thanks for stopping by!
