School Theme Baby Shower: Favors and Corsage

Since I had a school theme going on, I decided that bookmarks and notepads would make a perfect party favor! I used my Cinch to make the notebooks with covers in papers that coordinated with the rest of the party d├ęcor. The bookmarks were modeled after this cute one.

Of course I had to use a brown lunch sack to hold them – I’m kind of obsessed with them! To add a special touch I scalloped the edge with my favorite scallop punch.  I used bakers twine to secure them closed, and added scrapbook journal cards with a handstamped “many thanks”. I made some cute felt flowers based on this tutorial and glued them to the corner of the bag for a cute little accent.
By the way, I’m kind of obsessed with flowers that you can DIY, and this tutorial for felt flowers was so easy and fun! I used some more felt to make this cute corsage for the mom-to-be! I just hot glued it to a jewelry pin.
