Annes Little Folded Bag
Well Anne brignal from Crafters Anonymous was our tutor again this week and we made this fabulous little bag. It is made of one single sheet of paper and it is the way it is folded that gives you the bag without having to cut into the paper. Anne had a lovely rose on hers and recently I had search to find how to make paper flowers so I thought I would put one of these flowers on the front of the bag.
From my stash of paper I found a pretty blue and coral tartan which I have always likes and then found a coral cardstock that was an excellent match. The rose is made from the StampinUp 2 step Owl Punch using the owl body and the StampinUp scalloped circle punch. The square and scalloped square are spellbinders nestabilities and the embossed background on the coral background is Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. I have inked the inside of the coral square with Bashful Blue ink and have inked the edge of the coral rose petals with Early Expresso and the centres with Daffodil Delight. The leaves come from the StampinUp 2 step bird punch and again I have inked the leaves with Bashful Blue to give a little depth. I used a bottle of glitter I have which I bought some years ago to add some sparkle.
I like to put my ribbon through holes and I love eyelets so I used sun and butterfly eyelets in deep blue for the ribbon to go through to make my handle.
Hope you enjoy looking at what I'm doing as much as I enjoy making things leave me a comment to let me know you've been.
