Today's post is of a gift bag I made for the Fussy & Fancy Friday challenge, again I left it late but this is what I eventually came up with
The main body of the bag was made using Papermania's 'Vintage Notes' papers which has a lovely fabric texture and printed with various hearts in lovely subtle vintage colours.
I used this clever tutorial http://howaboutorange.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/how-to-make-gift-bags-from-newspaper.html their original was made using a newspaper which is quite fun
I cut the background mat using the largest of Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles, I then stamped Indigoblu's Blazing Poppies on some cream card and cut it out using Xcut heart die, flowers were then coloured in using Distress Ink pens. The sentiment is from Creative Expressions cut out using the slightly smaller X heart die. Flowers were made with Bitty Blossoms Spellbinder's dies.These elements were then attached using foam tape to give a bit of dimension. I kept the tag quite simple cutting a heart shape and stamping it with Clarity 'with love' stamp I then made a frame for it with cream card which I raised on foam pads before adding some pink gems.
Now I am going to enter it into the challenge @ http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk
