Play Date Cafe - Be Amazing Gift Bag

Thursday, August 9, 2012


It's Thursday and time for the Play Date Cafe Challenge.

Here's the bright and cheery color story:


This week I made a fun gift bag full of art supplies for one of Rachel's friends. I added a Pink Paislee felt bloom, a Whisker Graphics bitty bag, and an Echo Park chipboard butterfly to the front. For an extra special touch, I even added markers that match this week's color story.

Here are some close-up shots of my bag:


The prize up for grab this week is from Simon Says Stamp . Be sure to check out the PDCC blog for more details.

Fabulous color story, indeed, and I love your sweet gift bag! That felt flower is gorgeous. Love the chevron bag with the layered butterfly, too. :)
Thanks for your sweet comments on my mini album yesterday. I used a chipboard album by Maya Road. It's one of their word albums......had a die cut chipboard "love" on both the front and back that I just removed for my project. Hope that helps!
