Hey Big Shot!

I made these gifts using my Big Shot and Vinyl sheets! I used both Black and White vinyl. For this one I used the Flower Daisey#2 Die and the Alphabet Simple Numbers die. I also used my Serif Essentials Alphabet to cut a B - but it's on the opposite side of the bottle. I used a plastic water bottle to adhere the vinyl to. Ta-da! Done! I put my personal waterbottle in the dishwasher all the time, and it still looks brand new. Although - you will want to try yours out because all plastics are not created equal! :)
You have to give a cute gift bag, right?! So I grabbed this plain pink bag from my stash and dressed it up! I added a B cut from the Serif Essentials Alphabet in white vinyl. Cut more daisies Then added a fun butterfly using the Beautiful Butterflies die! The circles are from the center of the daisies!

I added some white tissue paper and some ribbon to the handles - but of course that was after the pictures were taken! Oops!

Sweet Music

I found this awesome project on Julia Bettencourt's blog. They were perfect for my son's Wednesday night music teachers! Too bad I found it on the day of their last class!! But I have to tell you... this was so simple and quick to do! The part that took the longest was going to the store for the candy!
Fold a brown lunch bag in half. Then fold one flap down about a 1/4 of the way to create a pocket. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes through all layers of the bag. I used Chocolate Chip ribbon to hold it all together. I found the sheet music online, and printed it on Whisper White Cardstock. I sponged the cardstock with Creamy Caramel ink to give it a distressed look. I used my large flower punch to create the flower accessory and used a brad to secure it to the ribbon. Added my Symphony bar, and printed Psalm 100 on Whisper White Cardstock, sponged with Creamy Caramel ink, and called it good! Julia's is more elaborate than mine, and I really could have used more color like hers but not bad for a quick teacher appreciation gift!
Who knew brown paper bags could turn out so cute?!
