Getting crafty

I snuck in a few minutes to create some advent bags for the tree.  We kind of buried the tree ornaments in our storage unit so its going to be a handmade Christmas.

I bought penny candy bags from Michaels and decorated them using the Echo Park Everybody Loves Christmas line.

Those cute little numbers?  I made them using some number stamps and shrink plastic.  Yeah.  Shrinky Dinks.  They made the perfect little numbers on the bags.

Lots of Stickles and cute 50 cent ribbon from Michaels.

Inside each one is an activity or toy.  I bought some stuff from the $1 spot like stickers, candy necklaces, ornament kits (you know, so we could decorate the tree) and a few other odds and ends.
