Gift Bag and Tag

Hi, this time I've a gift bag to share with you - it's another Funky Hand project, so you'll find it over on the Get Funky Inspiration Blog too - it's worth jumping over there as there's a new project every day!

I've used  "Spring Morning" designs from this month's showcase CD "V. Funky to make this one, and it's nice and easy because I've used an Xcut die to make the bag, then made it "my own" with a hand cut tab and tie closure and a different tag from the one you get in the die set

Materials and Tools
"Spring Morning" from the Funky Hand  CD "V. Funky
the designs were all printed onto "Diamond White" Bazzill card, which has a lovely soft sheen to it (but makes photographing difficult!)
Gift Bag die set (Xcut)
Tab closure is hand cut
EK Success border punch
Tag die (the top part is a Crafters Companion die, but I prefer straight sides so trimmed it down)
the Flower on the tag is made with this paper from the set:
I cropped, resized and printed just a section of the paper in 2 sizes and coloured the petals with 2 colours from the Spring Morning collection, then cut the flowers out by hand
Tiny circle punch (Xcut)
Bakers Twine

I hope you like it - my tip for today is to experiment at printing on different kinds of paper and card - you'll find lots of new ways to use your Funky Hand stash!
