Pack Your Bags


Welcome to my little crafting place! 

It's Daring Cardmakers Day again and this week it was my turn to set the challenge.
Pack Your Bags

Please feature some kind of bag on your card this week.  
Shopping bags, Paper bags, Evening bags, Beach bags,Holdalls, Party bags, Suitcases... Add any kind of bag in any way you like!
You could even make a bag-shaped card

  In the end I decidied to make a gardening tool bag. It has three layers each separated with a little matchbox 'hinge' so that I could add tmy die cuts berween the layers but still fold it flat to go in an envelope


The first attempt was way too big so I cut it down - I used my nesting circles dies and partially cut for the shape
Once the bag pieces were cut I added the little hinges, then made the pockets for the fron.  These are made by exactly  the same method as the hinges., I just punced part of a circle from the top of each before gluing them togeother and adding to the bag.
I have a few die sets with garden implements so I've used various of them to cut out the tools etc.
The background is from a digital download, resized to fit then printed and cut out 'fussy' style with scissors.  I used mousse to colour the base card to match then adhered the printed piece in place.
The seed packets are also from a digital download in the same way, then glued together in a 'bundle' and popped into the pocket
