Panda Gift Bag

     For my birthday this year, I decided to plan my own party. I met my kids and grandkids at the Natural History Museum Downtown. We checked out the exhibits and went to the I-MAX theater. The I-MAX was showing "Pandas". We went to Pappadeaux's Seafood for a mid-afternoon lunch, then back to my house for panda cupcakes. I had also prepared goody bags for the kids. I decorated bags that contained a fictional panda book, panda bubbles, panda cookies, and panda plushies. 

     I made a window using the Wood Leaves paper, then inseted the panda with 2 balloons. I tied twine to the balloons and attached them behind the panda's hand.

     This is Brooklyn's bag. You can tell because of the "B" on the gift tag. I cut the "B" and panda out of the Kraft paper, then placed a black mat behind to make it pop. I used white Gell pen to make the v's for his eyes.

     Here are the cupcakes I made using Pirouette Cookies. Don't the cookies look like bamboo???
