A day late, and a dollar short!

So I know you all came back looking for my sugar cookie recipe yesterday! Well, you're going to have to wait a little longer. Monday, I had my week all planned out perfectly, except for I forgot that the kiddos didn't have school today. "What does that have to do with a post for yesterday?" you ask. Well, it meant that things that would usually get done Thursday night got moved to Wednesday night, and no playing around on Wednesday night to have a post for Thursday. Does that make any sense!? So you'll have to stay tuned for the sugar cookie post, but I have something else for you today.


My blogging friend Laurie has made a lot of these boxes in a bag. They always look so cool, and everytime she posts one, I always tell myself I should try one. Well, I finally did. I have to say, though: I always think these 3-D projects will turn out larger than they do. The first one I made, following the tutorial here, looked great, but it wasn't as big as I wanted it to be. So I did a little changing of the measurements to make myself a bigger bag. I was wanting to put soup, crackers, and a little bag of cough drops in my bag, and that definitely wasn't all going to fit in the smaller bag. But if fits in this one perfectly. My kiddos ate the crackers before I could snap the picture, so now it doesn't look as neat without the little bag of crackers poking out the top. I thought that this would be a nice thing to drop off if you find out one of your neighbors or a friend has a little cold. When you know they aren't feeling great and you just want to give them a little pick-me-up. Now, the Digiment that I used here will be released tomorrow along with all of the September Digiments. If you haven't headed over to the Digiments site yet, you'll want to take a few mintues today to do so. Just for checking out the fun stuff the design team has been working on, and leaving a comment, you can win a ribbon package, a bling package, or even the entire release for the month! Enjoy your Friday, and I promise that in the near future, I'll share my sugar cookie recipe!

Your bag looks great and I love that you altered the size. I tried to make one of these once and it was terrible!

How clever of you to alter the bag to fit your thoughtful gift items into. Very pretty.
