Color Pop Fortune Teller at PTI

Hey there, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a sweet little glassine bag I decorated as a sample for a client who wants some party favors for her daughter's birthday.  I was completely inspired by the Color Pop Fortune Teller post today at Papertrey Ink.  I decided to use the Color Pop Fortune Teller to select the colors for my sample project.  Now, let me be honest when I tell you that I was a little bit freaked out when that darker blue popped up.  I thought to myself, "how on earth will I ever make this work"?  Well....I read Nichole's post again and read what she said about letting someone else pick your colors.  So, I just went with it and added some darker blue tulle and sequins.  It's definitely colorful!
I picked up these adorable glassine bags at a little shop in Mesa, Arizona a couple weeks ago.  I had never seen glassine bags in this particular size and shape before, so I swooped them up.  I tucked a cute paper straw and a wooden spoon inside the bags, thinking they would make really cute party favors.  This concept was inspired by a project I saw a few days ago on Lilybean Paperie, Melissa Phillips' sweet blog.
I implemented all the colors that the Color Pop Fortune Teller chose for me by including sequins and a seam binding bow to squeeze them all in to my little project.  I die-cut a heart, once in vintage dictionary paper and once in Sweet Blush pink wool felt.  I hung a sweet Tiny Tags Die and stamped it (Love) with a Tiny Tags Stamp Set.  
I'm sharing this sweet little project in the following challenges:
