Jewellers Bag

Hi friends. I know I said no more gift bags, but this is different!!! LOL!

Click on image to enlarge picture.

I bought my niece some jewellery for Christmas and had to pay extra for a presentation box . However, it was then inserted into this gift bag. It's very good quality so I decided I could use this instead of just wrapping up the box. 

There was a black frame around the edge and black cord handles, so I used  black glitter card and die cut two daisies from Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes, although in the picture it looks like just one. The leaves are Spellbinders Foliage. I added little floral pearls from WOC, to the centres of the flowers,  and the other little black pearls in the upper corners are from my stash . Initially I was going to use black ribbon for the handles but decided to leave the black cord because it looked okay. You know what they say (whoever "they" are) - if it ain't broke don't fix it!! The flower on the tag is from the Square Bracket Edge Box die set.

Well that's it for today. Thanks for taking time to look in!

With love from Christine xx
