More Gift Bags

Hello dear blog Friends. Well at last we are starting to see some green lawn and some patio ! I was beginning to think this snow was never going to go. However I went into town yesterday and was surprised to see just how many snowdrifts are still there, and also the piled up snow where the snow ploughs have been. Once I was past the next village, about three miles, there was hardly anything at all. We are actually quite a bit higher so obviously get hit worse.This has certainly been a rough couple of weeks!!

I've got a couple of bags and a box to show today. 


Click on image to enlarge pictures.

 

Both bags were made from First Edition papers "Dream Catcher". 

I used Spellbinders Grand Labels 1 for the first bag. The flowers are SB Jewel Flowers and Flourishes with SB Foliage. I had to add some purple stickles  to the leaves because they were disappearing into the background. I also used Glossy Accents and purple glitter to form the flower centres.

The second bag was made from SB Grand Labels 11. The butterflies are Marianne Creatables. The ribbons and pearls are from my stash. My friend is due her second treatment soon so I thought I would fill this one with some goodies for her - toiletries or something. 



The box measures 8½ x 5 x 2½ inches. I wasn't able to find a template anywhere for a box this size so I just worked it out. I was able to cut the box itself in one piece from A3 cardstock with some extra for the lid. I reinforced the lid and the top of the box to make it stronger. I think it may have been better to make the lid a bit deeper. The owl toppers were from Rymans I think. I didn't have anything else suitable for a little boy but I think this works okay.

Well that's all for now. Love and hugs from Christine xx
