Hello crafty friends. Sorry that I did not blog much last week. I have been working on projects for several surprise announcements coming up on my blog. Shhhhhhhh.....can't reveal anything now but stay tuned to find out all of the GREAT NEWS I received last week.
Today I wanted to share my latest altered project. I'm making gift bags for most of my gift giving this year. I designed it after getting inspiration over at Embellish Magazine and their fun "Bags - Color Challenge".
I also entered this over at Paper Issues for their Scallop Challenge.I didn't like the plain white handles on this bag, so I covered them with black ribbon to dress it up a bit. Here's a picture of the white handle and one covered in ribbon.
I used shiny gray paper to frame the front of the bag. I also added gray tissue paper on the inside. I love patterned paper and used polka dot pink, polka dot black, and scallops on the bottom of the bag.
I was in Bath & Body Works on Saturday and they are selling these beautiful felt blooms. I got one in a dark pink color. I think it fits in so well with the color combo on the gift bag.
This was such a fun bag to make. Can't wait to show you some others that I'm making with a Christmas theme. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your week. Stay tuned to the blog this week for more new projects and surprise announcements.
