Another Gift Bag - thanks so much

These wee bags are so quick to make and although they're not that big (9cm wide, 5.5cm deep and 18cm tall) they are just big enough to hold a bottle of handcream/perfume/bath salts etc. or even a cello bag filled with sweets.

This one is for my friend, who is being a huge help to me on Sunday. 

Instead of tying this bag closed at the top, I punched 2 tabs and taped them to the top edge and punched a hole in the centre of each for the ribbon handle to go through.

The dragonfly die is cut out with a Quickcutz die and layered together with different colours of card.
Star dust Stickles glitter glue was added to the wings for some sparkle!


The 2 flowers are cut with a Sizzix die and layered with the top flower having it's leaves turned upwards.  A white button was glued in the centre to finish it off.

Supplies
Designer paper - 3 Bugs in a Rug/ What a Hoot
Cardstock - Green, White, Purple, Yellow
Punches - Martha Stewart/Doily Lace, McGill/Round Tab
Sizzix dies - Vine, Bird w/Leaves & Flower
Quickcutz die - Dragonfly
Nestabilities - Circles
Stamp - Daisy Bucket
Black ink
Black doodling pen
White organza ribbon
White button, lilac thread

Thanks for looking!  I'll be back soon with more cards - lots of birthdays coming up.
