Happy Birthday Janet!

Today is my friend Janet’s birthday, and it’s a BIG one :-). So I tried to think of something unique for her. Unfortunately, she’s in the last month of her pregnancy, and food isn’t as much fun as it should be. I decided to give her 40 candy bars that she can munch on while she’s home on maternity leave. It’s a combination of her favorite candy in Full Size and Fun Size bars. And even though 2/3 are probably Fun Size, that’s still a heavy bag of candy! I hope she enjoys it.

Next, I had to decorate the bag just for Janet -- that means Greens and Pinks. Of course, I had to use the Cupcake Punch and the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch to made a tiered tray full of goodies. I used sticky strip to attach some Certainly Celery Striped ribbon all the way around the bag.

My favorite part is the tag on top to let everyone know just what birthday it is. I used the Sticky Sheets to cut some sizzix numbers with the Big Shot. Then I covered them with the Silver Glass Glitter. I created my birthday banner with the “Happy Birthday” stamp from Bring On the Cake. I used my marker to color just the letters I needed and stamped them where they needed to be. I tied the tag onto the handle with Hemp Twine and more Certainly Celery Striped ribbon.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by!

Really cute bag and tag, however, 40 is NOT a "big" one, ha ha. Thanks for sharing!
