The Grotto's First Make and Take!!

A while back I took a few of the little girls in my life to a Make and Take at my local Joanns which is in our mall. Unfortunately our location is a lot smaller than others, but I was thrilled to hear that they were participating in the Valentines Day make and take. The event was supposed to start at 11. At noon they were barely taking a Cricut Create out of the box to get this project started for these girls. It was very disappointing, so I decided to host my own for St. Patricks Day!

Here are my little darlings and I all dressed in green and ready to craft!
I chose to have them decorate a little paper purse cut from Forever Young so they could use it on St. Patricks Day!
From pom poms to ribbons, rhinestones to die cuts, these little girls used absolutely everything I put out for them!
The die cuts I used for them were the shamrock from Paper Doll Dress Up and a heart from Create a Critter. I cut the Shamrock out at about 3" so they could use the Cuttlebug!  They also had pipe cleaners to choose from for their purses handle!

Here's the one I made for them to have an idea of what it would look like folded up and put together.
Here are their purses all done! They make mine look so boring!! Aren't they all just too cute?! They all got a little goodie bag from me and my soulmate Jeri. I decorated them with the same shamrocks they had used, and I also put their names on them using My Gypsy and Gypsy Font. Inside we put gum and chapsticks, and a few other little treats. We had so much fun, I can't wait for the next get together!
Hope you like it!
