A Gift Bag should be as Beautiful as the Gift

Hi Everyone,

Tonight I am going to share a gift bag I have designed using the beautiful Les Beaux Oiseaux papers from Emerald City Crafts UK, I have found these papers so versatile and can't wait for Linda to bring her next set out.

As well as Les Beaux Oiseaux  papers I used:
  •  a plain brown paper bag 
  • some contrasting backing papers from my stash
  • String
  • Butterfly embellishments and 
  • the mixed rosettes from X-cut dies
  • For the tag I used the the image on the contents page of the pack of papers so you can see nothing is wasted 
I built up all the layers and distressed the edges with a little Tim Holtz distress ink and there you have it a gorgeous bag to hold your gorgeous gift.

For more designs with the Emerald City Crafts UK papers and ephemera why not visit Linda's Blog or the face book page.
