Gift Bags

With Easter just around the corner I thought it would be fun to make a some bags for the little ones for a few treats from the Easter Bunny.

I won't repeat the process on making this little gem of a bag, which requires one sheet of 12 x 12 paper! Yep you read that right, just one sheet!! Amazing right, and we get to hold on to our precious and gorgeous paper just a little bit longer! Does anyone else have a pretty paper fetish and hoard it rather than use it?? The tutorial for this can be found here over at Como Cricket, this is a great little video to watch.

This week the challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner is Fancy Folds, so my fold is the folds making this super cute gift bag. I used the image Birdie Hearts from Sami Stamps and coloured with Copic markers to make a soft grey and blue, to make a tag for the bag.

Again, I'm using Digital Images to be part of the project to help enhance rather than them always being centre stage on a card. I think the mindset is that images are meant just to be on cards, but they can be used in so many other different ways!!

Our sponsors this week are:

Prize: $12 Gift Certificate


Prize: 2 Digital Images/3 Images if you use an image from TSB

Hope you've had a good week so far and we're almost at the weekend again - yay!!
