Rockin' Guitar Gift Bags and Card

I finally finished my guitar gift bags that I have been wanting to make for a while.  And after a crazy fight with my camera about it eating up all the batteries and then having to go out and buy some more in the middle of the photo shoot, the pictures have finally been taken.  So, without further ado, please see below!  (Warning: Picture heavy.) 

A Rockin' Birthday!! 

These gift bags can fit a small gift.  How awesome would it be to give concert tickets in one of these bags?!   Jewelry would fit in it too. 

I love this card!  This template is from SVG Cuts. There's a blank overlay in the kit so you can add your own word. I used the work ROCK (obviously) from SCAL3's font - Arial Black. 
This card folds flat to fit in an envelope (which is also included in the kit), just don't add pop dots to your card like I did to add dimension (to the polka dot layer) or it won't fit in the envelope!

The guitar pick garland that's in the background was super easy to make too!
