decorating stationery

Morning everyone.  Its half term this week so i haven't had much time to craft as i have been spending some mummy daughter time with Lili.  She does love crafting though so while she was drawing some pictures for me i decided to do a few quick projects.  i have quite a few birthdays coming up so thought i would make some fancy gift bags and i have also been meaning to try decorating plain notebooks again.  Heres how they turned out..

 I used plain brown sandwich bags and scrapbook papers,ribbon, stickers and little embellishments

 I used my new cricut expression to cut out the letters

 I just love these doodlebug papers and accessories i used

 I also decided to make a fabric cover for this one then cut out the embellishments with my cricut and used mod podge overthe top to make them durable.
These projetcs are really simple and fast so give it a go and let me know how you go on!
