A little Gift Bag

Hello there,

Monday morning means it's time for our next challenge over at the 'Make My Monday' challenge blog and this week Rosie has chosen the theme, which is '3D ELEMENTS'. Now how much scope is there for this one - I didn't know where to start! It can be interpreted any way you like as long as you use something 3D, so it could be a 3D embellishment, decoupage, altered elements or even a 3D project itself. Here's what I decided on for my DT inspiration ...

I decided on the 3D project and made a little gift bag from just one piece of cardstock which I then embellished.  The image is LOTV and is called 'Big Hug' - isn't it adorable. I have coloured it with my Promarkers, added some frantage powder and a little glitter and then mounted it on a blue die-cut 'Fleur de Lys' square frame. Added embellishments include a Doohickey die-cut flower and heart swirl, together with some little punched butterflies and a few pearls.  

The reverse of the bag has a 'To/From' label (printed on my pc) mounted on a smaller die-cut frame, together with matching flower and little punched butterfly.

I can't wait to see your interpretations of our theme this week and shall look forward to visiting your blogs throughout the week. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations - Die Cuts/Punches
Cute Card Thursday - Dies and Punches
Fussy & Fancy - Bingo (blue, flowers and pearls)

Happy crafting,
Hugz, Jan xx
