Baby Bridesmaids Continued...

You may recall my post about the make-up bags that I found for my juniors. Well, they arrived, and they are...


They are exactly what I was hoping for. They are surprisingly heavy-duty, embroidered well, and cute! For $1.99, you just can't beat it. Here they are:

Here is one up close of the "S" make-up bag for niece S. :)

Cute, right?

Well, then I stumbled upon a GREAT find at Michaels (I LOVE that place). I found cosmetic mirrors and journals to add to their gift bag. They were each a dollar, and ADORABLE to say the least.
Here are the journals.

Here are the mirrors.

And here they are matching fabulously together. :)

I intend on getting some lip gloss and other girly accessories for the makeup bag.
Then, all of the items will go nicely in this bag that I found at Forever 21 for $1.50.

The other side of the bag says Love in the same writing. I thought that they were very tween-y.

So far:
- personalized make-up bag : $1.99
- journal: $1.00
- compact: $1.00
- cute bag to put it in: $1.50
- (not shown) Smaller note pad with initial on front (Michaels): $.50
Total: $5.99 each.

Not too shabby eh?

Take care until next time,

What an awesome idea for junior bridesmaids. I don't have any in my wedding, but I'm loving the idea!
