Madyson’s Easter Gift Bag!

by Myrna Irwin

I’m pretty sure by now that most of you know I am not a “pink” person. Ever since our Madyson came along I have become a pink person for her. LOL My Easter gift bag for her may just change my mind on pink. NOT!!!! Ok, it did turn out pretty awesome if I do say so myself. LOL I found the tutorial for it here at Nixe Moni’s blog. The only thing I did different is to glue all my “stuff” on the two outsides before I glued the two pockets together. So much easier that way.

This gift bag is not my typical style. I have ribbon and lots (for me) of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers on it. I had so much fun making this bag!! I just wish we could be there to see her face. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll hear all about it. I thought I’d look for a little book to put in one side and some cash in the other side.

I couldn’t decide what stamp and company to use so I used a Magnolia on one and a hAnglar on the other. Enough chit-chatting so here is my gift bag for Madyson.

Here is the other side.

I had a battle with the ribbon on the Magnolia side it just did not want to stay out-of-the-way! It had a mind of its own. Kind of like the little lady this is for. 🙂

  15. Pretty sure that is Printworks paper, I think I still have some! lol It came in other colors, I remember purple and green too! I’ll have to go dig! lol Really, that stuff is filed away, all safe and labeled. lol
    This is so pretty Myrna! Beautiful coloring and love the touch of flowers and dies. I love your idea to put a book and cash in it! Skip the candy! Save the teeth!
    : )) She’ll love it! One day, she’ll want to stamp with you!

  16. Very pretty double-pocket bag! Great idea to use a Maggie and a H&S! Your coloring is beautiful and No, I think you work with pinks very nicely!
    Hugs, Cami

  17. EGG-CEPTIONAL MYRNA!! I love it, love it!! Of course, I adore PINK in any tint!! The lay out is sooo perfect and Mady in the eggshell is beyond words. And then inside the precious “little words” for the little bunny who you are soo right has a MIND of her own. She’ll have so many cards too treasure and I cannot wait until she can comment on each one. That will be a dream come true for all of us and will be worth the price of gold. She learned a new word this week while we were there and it is was “ow. SO now all we have to add to that is a W for “WOW” and she can describe her Easter card made with LOVE by Aunt Myrna. I bet you had so much fun making it and your coloring is teriffic! By the way I could almost smell the flowers on the side of the bag-reminded me of mom immediately. So precious and designed to perfection sis,

    Happy Spring,
