Iron-On Tote Bag Kid's Craft

Happy Mother's Day to all my readers!  I hope you had a wonderful day or even Mother's Day weekend if you were lucky enough to celebrate both days, like I did!  Brad, the kids, and I all went to lunch on Saturday followed by a couple "errands" like going to Archivers :)  Yesterday the Grandmas came over and we presented their gifts in these sweetly colored in bags.
They were inspired by this project.  A clip art is provided with the original project but ER wanted something different.  I found a pretty flower bouquet coloring page on for ours.  You have to sign up for a free membership to download, but otherwise the printable is free. 

I framed each iron on bouquet with ribbon.  The top one was sewed and the bottom two were hot glued on.  I tried two different methods for corners and by far the fold over, shown below was the easiest.  We hid any messy ribbon ends with a big button.

ER liked coloring with the permanent markers so much, she didn't want to stop.  So our gift bags are especially colorful with freehand drawings on the otherside.  She also included her name, age, and a hand tracing.
These were so fun to make; they'd make great gift bags for any occassion by switching up the coloring page you use as your iron-on decoration.  It would also be a cool gift for kid's birthdays.  Iron on an image suitable for the recipient but leave blank for a do it yourself activity they can do after the party ends.
