Thanks for visiting today, this time I have a gift bag to share with you. I made this one for the nw challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers blog, we're taking a "Step Away from the Cards" again this week:
and making some gift nags and boxes.
This week, it's time to take another "Step Away from the Cards" and this time we'd love to see yourGift Bags and Boxes
We'd just love to join us by making and decorating a gift box or bag. it doesn't have to be Christmas-themed, we give gifts for lots of reasons and they all deserve some gorgeous presentation, don't they?
I do love to make bags and boxes, but as I've mentioned before recently the mojo has been lacking and it's been a struggle to make much at all! I still do more 'faffing about' than creating an actual project, but things are gradually improving (thank goodness) and I really enjoyed making this gift bag. I used a lovely digital paper set that I came across last year and downloaded but didn't use. It's so pretty and the colours are just that bit different from the usual - more Wintery than Christmassy.
I love using digital papers because they allow me so much flexibility to print on different materials and that I can manipulate the shape and size to suit my project
Papers: 'Winter Wishes' Digital Download via Etsy from The Digital Finch
250gsm Textured white A4 for printing, plus extra for a couple of the snowflakes
Silver card and paper for snowflakes
Sparkly organza ribbon, Silver Twine
Bronze coloured jewel
Various Snowflake dies
Circle die for Closure Flap
Spellbinders Edging dies for starry panel
I'm especially happy with the swirl shaped piece on this bag so I think I might see how that works out as a card design.
That's all for now
