Couldn't wait to share an unexpected surprise with you this morning!
Last night I finally had a minute to sit down with February Paper Pumpkin kit, and while I looked it over I decided to set it aside to use for an event coming up this spring. The cute gift bags would be perfect for door prizes. So as I stuffed four of the gift bags into the fifth one in preparation for storing it, I realized it made the most adorable and very sturdy little card file! It's perfect for storing cards and envelopes neatly and protecting them before you're ready to use them.
All the supplies to make the cute clothespin banner came with it, and if I had wanted to, I could have even stamped the outer bag to match my office decor. What a fantastic little gift this would be! Since I used all the gift bags on this project, I will have to put the other little banner pieces to work on a scrapbook page this weekend. It will be too cute.

This is great! I really love the size of these bags. I wonder if SU will be selling this size in the near future? They are a bit different than others you normally find. Looking forward to see what you do with the rest of the goodies.
