Fantastic First Grader Goodie Bags

So after my prototype box was altered by Hannah, I forgot about getting back to these projects until about 9:15 tonight.  So I was in a big hurry and had to come up with something fast and cute.  Today I finally got my Top Note Die that was on backorder so I decided to use that for a bag topper.  I have seen it used several times as an owl and the most recent one I saw was from Beth Redding.  These guys were so easy and relatively fast to put together.  So in the goody bags I made a bookmark out of a one sheet wonder, included a pencil, erasers and pencil sharpener.   They turned out great for only 1.5 hours of work (I can easily do that on one card at times.)

So here is the group shot of all 20 little baggies...

All Owls

Here is what each individual bag looks like....


And here is a sample of one of the bookmarks...
