For baby! Sweet Elephant Gift bag!

It is hard to believe that we have already received our welcome back to school paperwork in the mail yesterday! I had big plans for crafting this summer, but my days were filled with running, working, cooking, cleaning, laundry and dealing with 2 tweens..... Oh how I miss my summer days! Anyways I was lucky to be working from home yesterday, so I woke my girls up at 5:30 am to get some miles in and they both fell back to sleep when we got home. This gave me just enough time to make this sweet baby gift bag. At first I was going to use it to hold a gift card, but now I think I want to make a mini baby album to slip inside.

Gift bag and tag are cut from Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
Elephant is cut from 9 months
Tim Holtz Die tattered Pinecone 
Swiss Dots embossing folder
Butterfly charm from Stash
Recollections lace trim
The Twinery Seaweed Color
For Baby stamp Docerela Creations
