Pressy For My Mum~
I am watching The Final of American Idol while I am posting my latest creation!
It has been on since 9pm and is still on now, I am taking ages writing this out and watching at the same time. It has been on what seems like forever, week after week I have watched it and now it's nearly over. Finishes tonight at 11.10 GMT.
Tonight I have tried out a new craft...covering a brown paper lunch bag and making it into a gift bag. Cannot remember which blog I saw the demo for it, it was ages ago, but I roughly knew how to do it and actually it was quite easy.
It's my lovely mum's birthday in June, and I am getting her some tree's for her newly refurbished (if thats the right words to say about it ) garden~
But..I also want to get her a small personal pressy just for her and it is going in this bag..Hope she likes it, and what I eventually put in it.
These bags were from a local shop, and were only a £1 for 10, what a bargain.
I covered them in Basic Grey papers, have used my new Woodware punch for the big flower and leaf, the border is made with the giant MS punch. I have cut three layers in the Nestabilities, for Tilda and she is coloured using Pro-Markers.
Pearls were added and ribbon from my stash, I have inked the edges of all the papers with Tim Holtz distressed inks.
Challenges this bag fits in with are:
