Decorated bags and hand fans

Hola everyone!

Finally I am getting around to bloggin again.  I've been very sick with the Shingles for the past month and that was not fun at all!

However, right before I got sick, I was able to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom and my mother-in-law.

I bought these cute little bags for just $.25 cents!  Can you believe it?

I hot-glued some flowers and buttons to the bags and placed the gifts inside along with some mini gift tags I cut out with my Cricut.  They no longer look like $.25 cent bags, huh? :)

In the same little store I found these cute bags, I found these hand fans for just $1.00 and just made them pretier.

I hand-rolled some flowers, and the butterfly cut-outs from the little tags to decorate the fans.  Aren't they pretty?  Everyone was very happy with their fans and just loved them.

Just some ideas about not spending a lot of money to make some cute last minute gifts.

Hope that you liked them and that it inspires you to create.
