Good morning!! Yesterday, I shared a card I made for Kelley for her birthday and I promised to put up the coordinating gift bag today after I knew Kelley had already received it. Well she did, so today here is my giftbag. I also included a photo of the inside of the card.

The dp is from the BG Eskimo Kisses line. The stamps used are Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Birthday.

These are so fun and easy to make. I like a window on my gift bags so I used my spellbinders circle and cut it out after I found the center. The window is covered with a piece of transparency. I then stamped, colored and cut out my cat tails and adhered to the front of the window. My dragonflies were embossed in gold. The pearls are cut from a pearl flourish I had in my stock.

Bag recipe:
stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- With Heartfelt Sympathy
Paper SU Bella Birds, BG Eskimo Kisses
Punches and dies: Morracan Lace from EK (offered in my blog candy), tab punch (SU), Circle Nestabilities
Accessories: Hero Arts flourish pearls, pink grosgrain, button from my stash

I hope you enjoyed today's post!! I sure do know that I enjoyed making it. Sometimes it is fun to break away from a card and make a project instead.

Have a great day!! Thanks for stopping by.
