ABC means Anything But a Card.  I spotted one of these little bags somewhere in blogland and thought they were just adorable. I figured they would be a great place to put a gift card for a Mother's Day present.   I know my aunt and sister-in-law are going to go crazy when they see them. 
I'm not sure where I saw them but there was a link to a tutorial on how to make them, now that I know and am going to share it with you. 
These little bags are also as easy as ABC.  As I watched the tutorial I noted the paper sizes and where the score lines are.  The tutorial was so easy to follow that I watched it once and was able to make these several days later without going back to view it again.  I just needed to know where to put the score lines. 
Here's the link. 

Here's the deets:
no stamping on this one
no ink on this one
paper - K & Co TC Cottage Garden dp; Stampin' Up Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point cs
miscellaneous - Recollections rhinestones; SU ribbon; butterfly brads; MFT die-namics butterfly die; Stampin' Up tab punch; velcro closure

Here's the challenges:
Paper Cutz #90 - Mother's Day
I Heart Ribbon - green
Charisma #18 - no cards allowed
Craft Us Crazy - Mother's Day and/or Flowers
Nadia's - Mother's Day 3D
Party Time - Mother's Day

I'm telling you, these things are so easy you're gonna smack yourself in the forehead for waiting so long to make one.  If you make them as a party favor you can put a piece of chocolate in them.  So very easy, you're gonna love it.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you'll come back.  And thanks to Frenchie's Freaky Friday.
