How often has it been your fault that your daughter cant find her ipod headphones or anything else that has been imperative for her survival? Every other day it seems to be my fault that Miss Caitie can not find this or that and especially the headphones for her ipod. Well it will be my fault no more!

After the last episode when she couldnt find her headphones I decided it was time to act and today I did!

I recycled some empty brad containers and turned them into personalised little hand baggies for the girls and here they are …

How cute did these turn out and yes there is one for each of the girls!

I’ve simply used the Circle dies for the Big shot to cut out the Designer Series Paper & circles used for the layers. I stamped my images and then cut that piece using the 1 3/4″ circle punch. I used the marvellous Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the side to thread the ribbon through.

These little bags were inspired by a little bag that the lovely Tanya Kitto made while she was visiting back in August.  What a great week that was 🙂

Now not to be left out I made myself one as well!

I couldnt go past the Lap of Luxury DSP and the Morning Cup stamp set.

Even hubby commented on how cute the bags are and noted he didnt get one. Now I did offer to make him a little bag too but he said he’d survive without one!  There’s no pleasing some people!

So next time Caitie yells “Mum have you seen my ipod earplugs?”  I can then say …..

It’s in the bag!

well it should be!!

Just think of all the Christmas presents you could give in one of these!!


  1. Leonie, I love this idea! I have saved a heap of these containers hoping someday i would find what to do with them and now i have… Thanks so much for sharing 😉

  2. Love this idea ……. next time she has lost her headphones, it isnt your problem, she hasnt put them back in their so attractive cases. hehehe
    Enjoy regionals, you will rock them off their feet.:)

  3. I am loving these, what a great idea. I can see me making one for me as my headphones are always going missing, or getting tangled with everything else in my bag!

  4. Great minds think alike Onie, I’m in the middle of making a few of these as teacher gifts, it’s such a wonderful idea 🙂
    Linda Craven made one for me a while ago, that’s where the inspiration came from

  5. Inspired mothering genius Leonie!!!! Thankfully your delightful bags are slightly larger than the contents therefore hopefully lessening the “kiddy look effect”. Got a real gigglefm the ‘remote’ bag comment…perhaps a remodelling of a BGS clam shell maybe needed!!! Guess if I wanna have me a go at one of these I need to use my buttons and brads a bit more huh?? LOL!! Fitting coffee cup BTW. Great projects.

  6. Love it Onie . . . . So so so true!
    I’d love to make something in that vein for ‘Where’s the remotes?’ for a certain person!
