Happy Monday and welcome to today's makeover with this tiny birthday party favor bag. It's just the right size for a couple of miniature candy bars or a tiny trinket. These are fun to make and you can even get the kids involved. You do the cutting; let them do the coloring. They'll be bursting with pride with their creations and you'll be spending quality (and, fun!) time with your little ones. Kids love to create and they are naturals. Nurture that and experience the joy!
Try this cone in different sizes. As long as you cut your designer paper in a square, it will work. This one today is 4" x 4".
The Labeler Alphabet (141936) would be a great way to personalize these for a party.
The "stuffing" is just thin strips of Real Red card stock sliced with the Stampin' Trimmer.
Shopping List for today's project is below.

It's Back-To-School time and Stampin' Up! Storytime Designer Paper can help you "jazz up" a few supplies for your young ones to delight their teachers!
Here I've created a simple tag with nesting Labels Framelits with an adorable image as the top layer from the Storytime collection! A little sponging around the edges makes it "pop" and Linen Thread binds it all together!
The "For You" image is from the Itty Bitty Banners set cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits. You'll love how you can cut these darling sentiments with these two coordinating products!
I used Glue Dots to "group" the pens together before tying the Linen Thread. Makes it easier for little hands :).
Try grouping pencils, markers, or even notepads. Just a little something for your child to give the human he or she will spend most of the time with in the coming months.
Your child can help create projects such as this!
Have your child add her/his own personalized touch by signing the tag.
The teacher will appreciate the thought! ...Coming from a former classroom teacher. ;)
