Baby Pink

I'm really taken with the Forever Friends images on the freebie cd I got with a magazine a month or so ago and although this particular image is not meant as a decoupage, I printed it out three times and then layered up different elements of it. This gift bag is for the Forever Friends challenge which is:

Anything But A Card

I've drawn round an old Easter treat box from Thorntons (about 5 years old judging by the best before date!) onto paper from Craft The Year Away cd from Funky Hand. I've inked the edges after scoring them.

The fancy scallops at the bottom of the box use up some scraps from a previous project and I've used a Martha Stewart punch for it. Then added some thin white satin ribbon for detail.

The reverse of the gift bag is more or less the same.

And to close the bag I've used a strip of wide white organza ribbon. I'm in the process of making a matching card, so watch out for that early next week!

  • All papers: Craft The Year Away from Funky Hand
