I've been a crafter it seems forever from when I was a little girl learning how to knit and crochet with my grandmother and my aunt; sitting under a quilting loom threading needles for Gram and the ladies at church; learning to sew, quilt, doll sculpting, counted cross stitch and now onto paper piecings with cards and lay-outs!!!! I guess you could say I'm a well-rounded gal in more ways than one!!! LOL
Welcome to the Girlie-Girl Blog Hop, where all things girlie girl will be seen. Each person has their own interpretation of what girlie girl means so this hop should be fun.

My project was inspired by Jearise's preparations for her daughter's birthday party and the theme. I made a darling little gift bag with was cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More at 5.5 inches. I cut a little piece to add to the bottom just to make the bag a bit sturdier. This paper was such a find at Pat Catan's and has a shiny appearance and is very sturdy but wait, I only paid $.10 for this paper and trust me, I got what was left in the bin!!!!
In the cartridge they give "inspirations" as to suggested projects which I have often looked at and aspire to make them at one point! Well, that time had come as they had done the gift bag with the tags saying "Have A Happy Birth Day". I loved the look of the tags which were also cut from the same cartridge at 1.5 inches but I wrote instead "Dream", "Believe" "Love" in pastel colors to coordinate for the little bag attached with iridescent white ribbon edged in silver!
Now, to my inspiration --- Hello Kitty as her daughter has favors, invitations and button and now a gift bag! The Hello Kitty was cut from Hello Kitty Greetings 1.75 inches with Stickles for her bow!!!
The size is just purrrfect to put a small Birthday treat for a very special 7-year old!!! Happy Birthday!!!
