Cosmo Cricket Gift Bag

Wow...two days of posting in a row! I'm on a roll! Haha!

Cosmo Cricket posted a challenge on their blog to create a gift. For every project linked up, they will be donating $5 to an organization called KIVA. To see the challenge or find out more about KIVA, go to the Cosmo Cricket blog post here.
I have been seeing lots of Teacher appreciation ideas on Pinterest in the recent weeks. I have decided to send a little something with Peyton to give to his teacher every day of Teacher Appreciation week. I figured now would be a great time to get started on that! So I made a fun little bag. I'm not sure what will go inside, but there are plenty of ideas out there.
A closer up view. I used the DeLovely line from Cosmo Cricket. I should have taken a closer up as I zig zag stitched on both the top and bottom of the green piece. I cut a lot of slits and used my paper quilling tool to curl the little pieces. Up above I cut a piece from the strip tease paper. I then punched a circle and a couple butterflies to cluster up at the top. The ribbon is from the Cosmo Cricket Jack's World line.

I was visiting Izzy's blog the other day (if you haven't check it out, you really should. She is super talented). She announced she had joined the Paper Issues DT. Congrats Izzy! She also posted their current challenge and it just so happens I was able to combine it with the Cosmo Cricket Challenge! I just love it when that happens, especially when I am short on time! So I'm linking this project up to both!

The sickies have somewhat left our house I think. 3 out of 4 of us still have a nasty nose and cough. But for the most part are better. We may even venture out of the house for a while tomorrow and I CANNOT wait! I hope y'all have a great weekend! Thank you for stopping by!
