This week over at C.R.A.F.T challenge they want us to make a project with Embossing as you know I am bored with just making cards (and I have so many already made I don't know where to put them !! lol)
Anyway I have started to make other paper craft projects in a hope I can sell some in my eBay shop Die cut Dreams shop on eBay.
This little gift bag and memento book is completely handmade , to make it I used;
For the bag; 2 elegant rectangles 5" x 4" die cuts and run them through one of the new Quickutz embossing folders, cut out the oval handles with a punch and used a paper bag between the 2 die cuts to create the actual bag then I used distress ink around the edges and to decorate it I used some smaller die cut circles and stamps the Autumn leaves Friends sentiment on added a little more distress ink, I cut the butterflies from Bazzill card with the Quickutz butterfly die.
I finished the bag off with some ribbon and fluffy eyelash fibre, I was really pleased with it, but then I thought it needs something to pop inside so I made the small book from yet more die cuts punched a hole with my big bite machine added a 4" ball chain and a silver butterfly charm, it fits nicely inside the bag and it was quite a simple little gift to make a friend smile.
All the die cuts used are available from my shop
