Class Party Bags

These are the treat bags I made for my daughter's classroom for Halloween. You may think that I am really on top of things because I made 25 of these and I finished them yesterday. Well, not so organized am I (: I got a call Monday night from this mom, she was talking about this party at school, so I asked if she was talking about my son's class party (remember I have 4 kids) she was a little perturbed at me and told me it was for my daughter's class party. She then asked if I remembered that I was signed up to do the treat bags..NO. Now she is really disgusted with me, but I promised her that I would be able to make them. At the beginning of school (August) we sign up for all the little things that we will help with throughout the school year. I always mean to bring my calender and write this stuff down but I always forget it at home!!! It is such a mad dash to get anywhere with four kids. 
I have to say that I am very proud that I finished these little treat bags. They are very simple, but I needed them to be, because it was last minute and for 25 kids! My DD loves them so that is all that matters to me (: I try so hard to be super mom, but I am just not that good at my life.
My DH asked why I cut the tops (: I told him it was supposed to look like straw (: Oh well (: 
Let me know what you think!!!

well I think that they are as cute as can be! and I knew what the cut tops were for - sometimes our hubbys are just clueless when it comes to stampin' stuff. ;)

What great bags. What a lot of work these must have been.

Carmen said...

Great project! They look well planned out for the last minute ... I would have never guessed if you hadn't said. BTW it looks like straw to me, husbands just don't get it.

Gina said...

If you have your daughter's approval, that's all that matters! Plus that alone qualifies you as a super mom. I think they are very cute too.

Deb said...

These are so adorable! Kudos to you for getting them all done in time! I think being a mom is the best, hardest job I've ever had! You should not feel guilty for needing a reminder call every now and then! ;)
