As I mentioned a while back, I recently took an invitation making class with Alison where I learned about embossing paper. Since that class, I have bought a lot of various supplies which I wanted to put to use for this shower. I ended up embossing the gift bags and a photo matting (which I'll cover in the games post).

I then filled red and white checked paper sandwich bags (super super cheap at Sur La Table) with homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. My hubby made them the night before while I was doing something else. These cookies have become his specialty (we got the recipe from Philip) and we always have pre-made dough rolled into little balls in our freezer. He made 6 dozen of these bite size cookies.
Next I tucked the red and white paper into the bag. I like edible favors the best.

I then put the favors in a big woven basket we got a few years ago as a Christmas gift and put it by the front door so people wouldn't forget them on their way out.
I had also ordered stickers to match her invitations (with wild animals) that had her name and date of the shower. I put them on the back of the bag.
