Gift Bag

Hello, hello!!! Hope this finds you all well! Are you ready for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Jayne has issued the challenge of Gift Packaging-Bag, box, tag, etc. I thought really hard about making a tag, but couldn't decide what I wanted to put on it. I finally decided to make a little bag. This is from the Bags, Tags, Boxes and More cartridge. It is the shopping bag on page 114. I cut the box out at fit-to-page which made it 5 3/4 inches. I then measured the sides and ends and cut this blue gingham paper to cover it with. Then to decided what I wanted to add to the bag. I have never made a shaker card or anything like that before. When these shaker embellishments appeared in the Silhouette Store, I bought them and then decided to try my hand at it. Made this baby rattle just to see how it worked. It was just lying on my desk beckoning me to use it. So I thought, okay, a baby gift bag it would be!! I punched the tag from a the Tiny Tags Metal Die and the sentiment is from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set. Both of these can be found at My Craft Spot. I made a bow from some crinkle ribbon and glue dotted it to the front. then I made a tiny little bow with some 'Denim' twine from The Twinery. Attached it to the top of the tag with a tiny glue dot and then glue dotted the tag under the bow.
Why don't you head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the creations that my DT Sisters made. Awesomeness for sure!!! And while you are there, check the rules in the sidebar for our challenges and then head to your crafty space and create your own Bag, box, tag, etc. Can't wait to see what you come up with!!
Hope ya'll like my little bag!!! :)
