A special bag for a special person

Heya! I hope you've been enjoying your weekend so far. I think I caught a cold so I've been drinking lots of tea and have been staying in most of the time. I'm feeling much better than I did a couple of days ago so hopefully the cold will vanish into thin air in no time.

For today's project I have something special to show you. One of my sweet bloggy friends said she liked my gift bags so I told her I'd make one for her. She's already received it so it's safe for me to post it here. :)

I knew she liked Christmas and vintage/shabby chic style so this is what I had in mind when I started making a bag for her.

Right from the start I knew I wanted to use one of my Christmas angels stamps from Stempelglede. Then I just had to pick the papers.

I decided to use a white cardstock with golden stars printed on it as well as some champagne shimmery paper from my stash.

I used some shabby white frantage and some Ranger's Queen's gold embossing powder around the image. I thought it gave it a nice vintage feel. Then I "framed" the image with stringed pearls. On the pearl string I glued some snowflake diecuts that I cut from a white cardstock and then covered them with diamond Sickles.

I also used a lot of lace. On the bottom of the widest lace I glued sequins which I then topped with pearls. I also used a piece of cheesecloth and a beautiful champagne ribbon from Crafty ribbons on my bag.

And here's also a front view of the bag.

So, this is it. That's my little gift bag. :) I loved decorating it, but I was a bit nerveous to send it to Pamellia, because I really admire her work and because she rocks vintage/shabby chic style. She makes the most beautiful shabby chic creations and has tons of wonderful ideas. You can see her work on her blog - trust me, it's well worth visiting, her creations will make your jaw drop!!! And not only she's super talented, she's also one veeeeery sweet lady. :)

Well, that's all from me for now. I wish you a wonderful Saturday evening and have a great Sunday. :)

Hugs! xx
