Envelope Gift Bag

I watched this tutorial by Lisa and decided to have a go at making a gift bag from a Kraft envelope, we don't really get many "Trick or Treaters" so made my bag for an adult. Its the perfect size for chocolates or small toiletry samples.

After seeing Heather's fabulous card and watching this tutorial that she recommended, on how to make these beautiful flowers I knew it would be the perfect finishing touch to my bag. I Love how the flower turned out so have made more, you will probably see them popping up from time to time!
This bag is for the current Hero Arts challenge which for this month is an Autumn theme and also gift bags, it also fits the challenge at Sir Stampalot which is "All Distressed".  Lots of distressing here, what did I ever do before Tim Holtz inks!! (I seem to remember using cold coffee and tea bags! to age paper).

Supplies: Hero Arts stamp CG187 Floral Brocade. Distress inks, Bundled Sage, Barn Door,

Well I have survived my first two days at work its always hard to get back in the swing of things after the summer holidays.  Hope you have a fun weekend.
