Two more Baby Gift Baggies...

I sing in the choir at my church. In our choir when any of the ladies is having a baby we always shower them with diapers and wipes. This week we are honoring three ladies so I needed two more gift baggies.

My first one (previous post) is for a baby girl. These next two are for a baby boy and a baby due who's sex they won't know until the birth, so I had to make something a little generic.

So here are my next two baggies. (Didn't I tell you these bags were ugly!!!) There must have been something redeeming in the package, which I've a long time ago used, for me to have purchased them. I'm telling you, these bags were not easy to get creative with.

So anyhooo..

Here I've used #115 Baby Edwin for the little boy bag. Many of the images from this collection are still available from Diana at Magnolia-licious store. Please stop by to see the fabulous price cuts and deals she has going on. This collection is just so sweet and wonderful to color. Please don't ask me what Copic markers I used, because I just steam rolled through these two bags today. I didn't keep track at all - shame on me!

A close up of Edwin...obviously the recipient of this bag
is named Bentley. Oops I just noticed that I spelled the name wrong on the tag.
Okay, so I'm off to fix that problem immediately. Sheesh!
I used my Whimsey Stamps Banner dies to make the banner here!

This gift bag uses "Bambino" by Sugar Nellie. I tried to keep this one pretty generic...

A closer look at Bambino...
Okay, whew! It's been a bit of a marathon today, but the projects are done and I've put a package of wipes in each bag. The diapers I will carry separately, just adding them to the pile in the choir room.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog again! You can't know how appreciative I am for your visits and that you take the time out of your busy lives to leave me some encouragement!

Blessings and hugs,
