Scallops, Orange and String!!
I can't stop making these cute little gift bags!! After watching Lisa's tutorial here I am totally hooked, they are so simple to make and you would never believe that the base is an envelope. For this one I dug out my Country Hearts design block and stamped in white, then I distressed with Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed Yellow. The Top is a Nestie shape cut in half.
Here is another more simple design using an oval nestie shape folded in half for the flap, I have added a hook and loop dot for a fastener under the flap. The apples have Glossy Accents on to give a nice shine.
A little photo of my three favourite bags, great for little gifts!!
The top two bags are for the challenge on sweet Jenny's blog this week, which is "Scallops, Orange and String" you have to incorporate two into your design. They are also for the current Hero Arts challenge of small gift bags.
I am all excited my DH took me shopping yesterday and has bought me a new all singing all dancing sewing machine, I spent Saturday learning how to use all the functions. Can't wait to get started on a proper project!!
Hope your weekend is going well.
