Recycled Gifts...

Two of our friends are having Birthday parties this weekend, so here's an easy project that will be lots of fun for the recipients!
Drink Pouch bags....
Go Here for the instructions I used. The first one took about an hour because I was going between my sewing machine and the computer because I didn't feel like printing it out. The second was closer to 30 min.

These are easy to make in customized sizes, just add more pouches. The boys want a "cool bag" so I'm planning on making them each a lunch bag that will hold our new divided food containers.

Teacher Appreciation Cards

One of the last tasks I've taken on for PTA this year was to make invitations to the teacher appreciation lunch. They were simple, but turned out cute. Pretty paper with a solid color back, then took coordinating solids and stamped the saying on the front, sprinkled with embossing powder, heated them and attached them with 1mm foam squares. These are postcard style, with the invitation information printed directly from word.

This is also the same style I made Thank You cards for the people the made private donations for the auction.
