Gift bag with a difference…

Saw this little creation over at Flourishes blog – click the pic above to take you there

I have made this for a friend’s birthday. I think she will like this idea – a little different and rather quick to put together.

I have used Flourishes Vintage Wallpaper stamped in SU Real Red as the background. I used a sentiment from Flourishes Wedded Bliss for the front focal point (in hindsight I should have used Kraft cardstock instead of white) and die cut with circle die and mounted onto scallop circle. The front flap holds a necklace (you can see it poking out the top) for her and the inside the card. For the card I stamped an image from Flourishes Spring Blossom and added a small strip of real read cardstock to the edge. I used a 1 3/4″ circle punch to punch the opening. My bag was a different size to the one used in the link I just cut a bit more from the top and made my inside card to fit.

and another couple of pics

Here is a pic of the jars the girls were busy decorating – it was worth hoarding collecting all those jam jars!

Been a busy day today. Short trip to Melbourne Zoo – great day for it. Lovely and sunny and Miss S took the pics this time so easy for me. After lunch we headed off to IKEA as I had to return something and now Miss S is at a party at Bounce (a trampoline place) so I’ll be picking her up a bit later tonight.

Thanks for taking a peek

Cheers

  1. Beautiful! I think the white is perfect and wouldn’t change it. The vintage feel with the background is wonderful. They will certainly love this! Thanks for playing in our In the Bag Challenge.
