"Sorry Dear, I Don't Have the Time" Goody Bags

Hi Everyone! I finally made a scrappy project. . . you know, a "no rubber stamping" project. My daughter asked if I could make Valentines goody bags for the "Key Club" (Kids Educating Youths), a wonderful organization that she part of. The Key Club are teens that volunteer their time and weekends helping out the community. I feel the kids deserve a treat. My daughter is the Treasurer and my son, the Vice-President of the club and my daughter is planning to run for President next year. So. . .I, initially, said "okay" but when I asked her how many did she need, she said 50. "Fifty"!!!! Ummm. . .I said, "look dear, I don't have the time". . .does she think I'm a machine?? LOL!

Anyway. . .I thought about it and decided if I could come up with a fast and easy goody bag design, I believed it was possible to create 50 bags without killing me. Well, I came up with a template that takes 5 minutes to complete the whole goody bag. Honestly. . .it takes only 5 minutes. I now believe it is possible to make 50 decorated baggies and it won't take every waking hour to make all of them. I've already made 20 of them and it took me about 2 hours to make.

I'll create a tutorial for this goody bag so you can try it out. I mean, it's not a fancy baggie but kids care about the candy not the bag or box, right. I don't think they even look at the bag, they only look at what's inside the bag.

I'll try to post the tutorial today! I better get started. . .

Until later, folks!!
