Mothers Day Gift Bags.

So this year Elder's Quorum was given the assignment to do Mother's Day Gifts in our ward. Considering Daniel is the Elder's Quorum President, it became my assignment. I instantly saw this as an opportunity to do something cute and different... and to have some crafting fun!

Taking into consideration I am poor, the budget allowed to pay for these gifts by the ward was reasonably low, and I needed to provide approx 70 gifts, I knew I needed some help. My initial thought was to do treat bags. I could make a cute greeting, have some goodies in a bag, nice and easy... but that was until I talked with my Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Her ideas... fabulous. Scrap what I thought cause it was rubbish!

With her help we came up with a sweet little idea. It only took about 4 hours to construct all 70 gifts. Best of all, Daniel was a HUGE help. He might be slow, but he kept going until it was done. I'm proud of his efforts! :)
