I had the challenge to come up with graduation goodie bags to pass out after my son's graduation dinner. Since they would have to travel to the east coast I needed to be able take them disassembled and assemble/fill them quickly once we arrived at the destination. I came up with these owl bags which were amazingly easy to create due to the Echo Park owl die I bought at HM Ben Franklin Crafts. I also used a die ( Quilled Creations purchased at BFC) to cut out the leaves.
The parts, including the googlie eyes were glued with Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue (great adhesion and wonderful applicator pen). The cap was created with a Dandelion stamp used on the same brown colored card stock as the owl head so that the tassel wouldn't need to be so carefully cut. Being unable to find the right sized number stamp, I had to hand write the year.
I used the 3 in 1 Beacon glue (got it from BFC) to adhere the owls onto clothespins which will eventually be used to close the bags of Big Island cookies. The bags with the windows were from a store in Japan, but I'm sure you can find a windowed bag somewhere and you can stamp words on them to jazz them up. I am very pleased with the outcome of this project because it wasn't too time consuming and I will be able to pack everything easily in my suitcase and give the guests something attractive and tasty to take home. Hip Hip Hooray!
