I am meeting a crafty friend today! I am so super excited! We are meeting at Hobby Lobby, so much fun! I wanted to bring a little "Just Because" gift because she is taking time away from her Family to meet up with me! And since fall is almost in the air here in Arizona, I went with a Fall Theme!

 Handmade flowers:
 Goodies for the inside:

I made the bag using Plantin Schoolbook
Paper from K and Co Fall Harvest
I handmade the flowers using a circle punch, scissors, hot glue, Stickler and bling
I used my Sizzix for the leaves

Circle punched the acorn and inked around the edges.
Then stuffed it full of goodies!
