Mudpie Goodie Bags...

Woohoo! Last post with the Mudpie goodies. The weather has been terrible for shooting pics, so these seem a little washed out, but the colors are very vibrant in person. The goodies bags also coordinate with the other Mudpie decorations I've shared this week. I bought these striped bags from Baker's Bling on Etsy. They come in a variety of color stripes and Baker's Bling carries all sorts of cupcake wraps too. I bought them just to have, but when we came up with ideas for the party, these bags were the first thing that came to mind. When making items for kid's parties, I like to keep them fun yet simple. We all know they will just get tossed out once the candy has been devoured. For the cupcake bags I started with the close pins and covered them with lime green cs and stamped in versamark with polka dots. I cut the circles with my CM punch and the cupcake is punched from SU! Just added a little bling on top of the cupcake and clipped the close pin right on the bag.Now, since a few boys will be at the party, you've got to make them something just as fun...without the girly stuff! I couldn't resist this little SU! pirate stamp. Some of the pirates I wanted to make special for Mom since she is an Eastern Carolina Univ. Grad. (ECU-pirates) so I just used my copic markers to color in the school colors. To make the sword 3-D, I simply added a small dab of crystal effects and it made the sword nice and shiny.
