Anything BUT a Card - Crafts 4 Eternity

Oh I love this recipe challenge - anything BUT a card!! This week over at Crafts 4 Eternity, we are sponsored by the generous Michele of Crafts 4 Eternity offering 3 free digital stamps!

We have a couple 'girly' birthdays to celebrate, I absolutely loving making these 2 pocket gift sacks! This one is Kraft and Cream/White striped and measures 5" x 7 1/2". I folded up about 3" at the bottom and sewed around 3 edges, I then threw in lots of pink, red, some pretty blue and a super cute image and sentiments!

The front pocket holds the little blue mini notebook paper stamped with the image and 2nd sentiment from Taylored Expressions "Belated Birthday - Stand Out" (cuz yes, we are technically late with this gift - oops!!). I colored the image with Copics and added a little pom pom to the top of the birthday hat. I also outlined the age with a black heart...look close, see it? She just turned 15!

The outside sentiment (upper right corner of the lower pocket) says "I didn't forget your birthday"; while the bird tag says "I just wanted my card to stand out from the crowd!". Cute eh? The birthday message can be written on the back of the bird tag.

We will tuck some cash and small items into the upper pocket - where you see the tissue paper. I added 3 scallops across the bottom to tie in the blue and some gorgeous Hibiscus Burst ribbon tied into a fluffy bow. Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT weekend!
