Welcome Blog Hoppers!! Here is my entry for the BLOG HOP Challenge!! As you may be aware it was my ribbon card that Nichole said was the inspiration for this months challenge. Here is the card if you haven't already seen it. I was quite thrilled about that as you can imagine.
I couldn't think of anything not done before so instead of reinventing the wheel I decided to just make something pretty! I figured something different for me would be to make a gift bag as I haven't done many of those before You can't go wrong with rows of pretty ribbon and gorgeous bows, right?!?! I wanted to make some kind of embellishment and I was lucky enough to receive a quart size jar of buttons from my mom recently. These were close at hand so I made a button flower and used the ribbon for the stem and leaves. The flower is actually a tag and is hanging from the handle rather than glued in place. I also stamped the "Celebrate" sentiment from the Women of Life set. It really is a cute little gift bag (too bad I will never give it away as I am a hoarder). I hope the photo does it justice....it only took me 60 tries to get a good picture! LOL. Funny thing is I remember telling a male coworker of mine a while ago that it is cheaper to make your own gift bag. I take that back.....hahaha!
Have fun Blog Hopping everyone. I can't wait to see what you all have made. Don't you just love the Papertrey community? Thanks for stopping by!
