Just a quick post (as I know you will all likely be tied up with Christmas preparations) to show you some gift bags that I made to wrap some special presents. They are large enough to take a very large bar of chocolate or a nice piece of jewellery.
I am entering these into Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is Gift-spiration and I thought my gift bags would be appropriate to enter. The Design Team have made the most beautiful items, it is worth popping over just to have a look at them. There is a $50 Gift Voucher on offer to spend at Simon Says Stamp, and the winner of the voucher will be picked by Random Generator. Three other people will be chosen as the Top Three by the Design Team.
The bags are made from a template that I created from a chocolate bag wrapper that I took apart. It goes together easily and if it is made from lightweight card it is quite substantial.
The first one is made up in plain white card and I added some gorgeous BoBunny papers, added a Spellbinders poinsettia, a bow dyed with Festive Berries Distress Ink, and a snowflake charm. The flap at the top is the reverse side of the BoBunny paper and the peg holding the bag closed is covered in the same paper.
The second bag is made from my gorgeous Teresa Collins cardstock, the flap at the top is the reverse side of the cardstock. I punched two holes and threaded through ribbon from my stash. The pinecones and the 25 are from Tim Holtz dies. The 25 has been covered in Rock Candy Distress Glitter to give a subtle sparkle.
If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment, I love to read them all and I will always do my best to return the compliment. Hugs, Anne x
