paper & pencil cookie bags

well looks like the sharks are finally swimming away as the week draws to an end.
which only means we are coming into the school season.

not to mention pumpkins, turkeys, and fall leaves at the store already these days...
something i am not quite ready for!

in fact, my head's been kinda spinning getting back into the school schedule again.

i needed something to get me outta my dizziness.
so i made some fun easy peasy treat bags for school. 
check it out.
yes you can make these bags actually or just buy them here.
if you make them, just use a ziploc bag and then gluestick a piece of school paper on top cut to size. 

ok now let's get something else with them. 
we need a pen or pencil or something to go along with the paper right?

what do you think of these?
oh my goodness it was love at first sight.
so yes i guess i really am a kindergartener in an old woman's body.

and hey! not only are they 3-D, 
they write too!
ok ok so i had you going there for a sec, they don't really write! :>P 
but the sharpie gives the bag that illusion. and i used a black sharpie to describe the year.

see, lookie:
i used the best handwriting i could muster up to make these.
my real writing actually looks like spaghetti caught in a lawn mower if you can picture that...

anyway, look!
hey where'd the buses come from?
oh happy smiling buses are just what these bags need.


hey now that's what i call starting a new school year right.

  3. You will go to the head of the class for this project! My brain is spinning with ideas! Those cookies are so cute, too! Oh, and you have school teacher's handwriting, as my mom used to say. She never saw some of the teachers writing that I worked with! So another A+ for that! Dona

  7. LOL As I sat here, transfixed by the cuteness of those pencil stickers, I almost feel off my chair when you said they "write" too! Yep, you did have me on the line there for a moment! (leftover "Shark Week" analogy!)
    Your handwriting is perfect - your "spaghetti caught in a lawn mower" image actually describes my hair this morning!
