May * Mother's Day Book

This month we made a Mother's Day Book and a cute gift bag to put the books in to give to your mothers.

Here is the book:
Notice that the ribbon is off to the right...

Without the ribbon:

The inside (Click picture to enlarge)
Put the ribbon under the last picture. DO NOT center the ribbon. It needs to go off to the side so the ribbon ties to the right hand side (see the first picture at the top)

Here's the cute Grandma quote. For some reason this picture won't flip the right direction!

The next two pictures show embellishments you can do if you choose! :) Have fun!

Our second project is an 
 Owl Gift Bag
 Start off by cutting out pattern and stamping a background stamp on front and back side of bag.
Then attach the belly, nose, eyes and flower. The instructions for the flower are the same as the bunny tale from last month. The tutorial is found here: . 
The inside of the bag looks like this before it is attached.
You will need two pieces of 5" x 10" paper scored like this:
the black lines are the scored lines, and the green lines will need to be cut.
 Fold along all the scored lines and put together using glue or sticky strip. 
You will then put sticky strip along the front and back sides of the bag to attach your owl to. Be sure to leave at least an inch of space so the sticky strip doesn't show under the owl.  
After you glue the owl to front and back, punch holes in each side for the ribbon.

   VoilĂ !

 Here is your beautiful finished bag!
