Happy Monday! Wow..another week has begun and I've just finished a 'work in progress' creation. Can you believe I've had to make this practical gift bag in dribs and drabs as there was too much happening in the house that it couldn't be made in one go! So here it is...I've used a sheet from Janet's freebie paper, marked out the bag template on reverse, cut out and put it together...I did want to stamp something directly on it but it was too late, it was assembled and firmly inplace with pva. Flower die is CC Designs Phlox flowers, gorgeous one to work with, MS doily lace punch to mimic lace detail, old shiny pink braid for strap.
Other side is a fab LOTV stamp 'emma's shoes', coloured with Promarkers, mini pearls for her necklace, glamour dust added too.
The inside is lined with some paper used for the tag, bit of velcro for fastening but I'll have to think of another method as it pulled up the card it was attached to. Bit of money to go out shopping and celebrating. Hope you like my gift which is a present for a little madam's birthday in the new year. I like to be prepared although I think christmas comes first!
