Floral gift bag

Hello lovely people,

Another weekend has whizzed past, another Monday has been and gone and now it's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday where we have the theme of...


We are sponsored by Shape EZ with a prize of 2 templates of the winner's choice

I have used the roll bag template but I have made the bag up without the wave shape at the top.  This was partly because I have to cut the shape by hand and it's a bit fiddly to get this shape neat and lined up if you push the top edges together, and partly because I thought it looked better for my design!

I have used some more of the new LOTV papers; this pack is full of lovely bright colours.
The teeny flowers are cut from the same DP so it would all co-ordinate.  I was inspired for this by Sue of Tanglemouse Cards; check this beautiful card out to see what I mean :-)

Bag recipe;
Ribbon / twine: from stash
Dies: Perfect petioles - Memory box, Circle stax - MFT die-namics, Old Swedish lace - Magnolia Doohickeys

I hope you will pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and check out the wonderful shaped projects from the rest of the team and there are some great tips for you too :-)
