Dawn McVey was my inspiration the other day with her April 12 post. She decorated the most beautiful bag, and I thought I would try to do something similar. Whaddya think?
I embossed the blue center cardstock with a sizzix embossing plate.
My son told me that the flower paper looked like I bought it that way - he was really surprised that I had stamped it.
I really like how this bag turned out!Well, now that I had the bag done, I needed to make a gift card holder. I decided to make the little book style holder, similar to the one I made earlier this week.
All of the baby images came from the New Arrival Cricut cartridge. I added some brown twine at the "binding" so I could add the little pacifier charms.
I sponged all of the edges white - it added a nice soft effect. The outside of the book is stitched with cream thread. I also stitched under the paper on the inner pocket page, so the card holder / book is very very sturdy.
Here is a picture of the gift bag and the card holder together:
This project took some time, but it was so worth it! I can't wait to see the new Mommy's face tomorrow when I give it to her!
