Box in a Bag...the Little Guy

I had to. I just had to. Make a box in a bag in a small version, that is. Don't you think everything (ok, a lot of things) looks cuter when it is little? Well I know I do. So if you would like to whip one of these up here is the info. I used Real Red card stock from SU, Chalkboard designer paper from Provo Craft and purchased at Michael's , and "ruler" ribbon (Thanks Peg). I cut the designer paper at 2-1/2" x 6-1/2". The square to make the "box" bottom measures 2-1/2" x 2-1/2", scored at 1/2" on each side. The scalloped strip is 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" long. You can fit about five little candy bars inside the bag. What teacher wouldn't want one of these? Speaking of teachers, can you believe school starts in just one week. Where did the summer go?

Speaking of little things, I would like to introduce you to "Ethel." She is sooo cute! My Aunt and Uncle just got her and they stopped over to my house for dinner. I just adore her.

I just couldn't resist taking a picture of her favorite napping spot, next to one of my flower gardens. However, she did not get much rest with my four nephews arguing over her. Poor little girl.

One more baby to share with you. My nephew Bridger caught a baby salamander. I have not seen one like this before. It was black with small spots of blue on it. It was neat looking. I just love the expression on Bridgers face. Priceless!

Well I hope you had a great weekend. Take care and happy trails.
