Birthday Gift Bag

Three of the children in my preschool class will be turning 4 years old this week.  This is the gift bag I made for Katherine, whose birthday we will celebrate today.  I started with a white gift bag that I purchased at the craft store.  I cut a piece of card stock to fold over the top - so she can't peek in until she gets home!  I used the modern label punch to cut out a section to fit over the handles.  I was just going to make the banner, then decided to stamp some flowers on the bag to coordinate with the Designer Series Paper I used in the banner.
This is a close up of the banner.  I used the Bow Builder punch to make the bow.  (The number 4 was cut using a retired Bigz Die.)

This is the card that I will put inside the bag with a few goodies for the Birthday Girl.  I thought I was being clever this summer when I made enough of these candle cards for my entire class.  But now I wish I would have waited and used colors that coordinated with the bag.  I made the candles using scraps of retired paper - so I didn't have any left to decorate the gift bag.  Oh well, I'm sure Katherine won't notice!
