Simply Create Too - Challenge 95 - Autumn Splendor

The current Simply Create Too challenge is under way and the theme is:

Autumn Splendour 

Before Samuel finished Primary School in July, I made his teachers gift bags and then added some useful school equipment - pens, pencils, paper clips, note books etc inside, and this is one of the bags I made.   I bought a job lot of white gift bags a while ago from ebay and I've decorated it with papers from Funky Hand (now retired) using X Cut dies.

I've used a Sizzix die for the tag and handwrote it, adding ribbon from my stash to attach it to the handle.  Really simple and quick to make plus I managed to use up a lot of off-cuts I had lying around which I just did not want to throw away!

Good luck with the challenge - more details are on the Simply Create Too blog.  I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crafting For All Seasons:  Autumnal Hues
Creative Moments:  Autumn Colours
Try It On Tuesday:  Autumn Colours
Our Crafty Corner:  Autumn Colours
