This Tuesday

Here is the bag that I made to show a complete gift set at my last class of the desk collection. See my post on the class here: http://nutmegcreations.blogspot.com/2009/04/wacky-wednesday.html Jill Hilliard (the designer) also made this bag for a gift and I thought that I could case it as well. I really love the tag for the long bag.
I used a wine bottle bag instead and stamped the flowers all over the front in black and kiwi kiss. Added trim pieces (one punched in eyelet border) and taped onto bag. Added the tag which measured total 2 3/4" x 3 1/2". Cut the paper 2 3/4" x 7" and fold in half. Add layers - black 2 1/2" x 3 1/4", kiwi kiss 2 1 /4" x 3", white stamped image 2" x 2 3/4". Punch hole thru card on top left corner and tie with ribbon to bag. Add a ribbon bow to finish it off.
This is the card I made to match for my mother's birthday gift. It is a gift card holder as well. I will show you how to make it in a coming post where I made one for a wedding card.
Have a magical day!

I like these colors together - the black makes it all pop! Great idea!
