Tags and Bags

When I was browsing around the Silhouette Studio site, I spotted a freebie file for this bag. I then saw the challenge at CASual Friday was tags and Bags so I thought I would have a go with this cutting file.
I made the bag part as large as I could from a piece of A4 card and adjusted the handle size accordingly.
Once cut, I clear embossed the stars, from Artemio and the splatters, from Paper Artsy and then added the ink using Sponge Daubers.
I finally added a few stamped tiny stars in silver. These were in a £5 grab bag from Rubbernecker stamps from Ally Pally some time ago.
I decided not to decorate the handle and so simply clear embossed it.
The tag is from a Sizzix Bigz die treated in the same way as the body of the bag!
Now... what to use it for!

  2. Such a clever way to use this file, Chrissie! I love how you inked your pretty!

  3. Whatever you put into it... the recipient will be amazed by the beauty of your embossed and inked paper.

  4. Hi Chrissie, what an original gift bag, love the starry pattern!
    I'm sure chocolate in some form or another would fit perfectly in there :0)
