Small gift bag

Oh my goodness, I completely forgot to write this post this morning. Shame on me! But time has been just flying by today. I can't believe October is already here. When I finally begin to think I'm getting back on track with everything, I fall behind again. *sigh*

But I'm sure you are not here to read about how busy I am, so let's rather talk about other things, shall we? A new challenge started at Crafty ribbons blog today and it's everyone's favourite - anything goes with ribbon.

Today I made something different. I bought a pack of white paper bags some time ago and never really got to use them (I wanted to use them for mini albums, but they were not good). They were just sitting on the shelf in my cabinet. Now I decided I would put them to some use. So I made a gift bag. It was really fun to make and I love the result so I will definitely be making more of them. I think they will be perfect for not too thich Christmas gifts! :)

See how this bag closes? So simple, but so effective. :D Yup, you'll definitely be seeing more of these. ;) As you can see, I used the adorable Flying angel Tilda stamp for the front of my bag. I colored her with distress inks and I added some glitter glue on the wings. I used 3 different ribbons on my bag - you can find them all in the Crafty ribbons store. I used do not open fairy pink ribbon, gold stars Christmas ribbon and tan satin ribbon. The poinsettia is Marianne design die and I also used gold brads from my stash. It's a bit hard to see in the pictures, but I distressed all the edges with my scissors.

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it! :) Hugs! xx
