A Birthday Gift Bag for Beth

Hello everyone, today I have another creation to show you! I made a gift bag for Beth’s birthday gifts I gave to her on Friday! I haven’t ever made a gift bag before, so I took apart an old one and copied the measurements and the folds!

So here is my gift bag:

I just love these papers and colours – they are so summery and bright

I decorated the back of the bag as well by printing out a letter to her on beautiful paper.  I added a piece of ribbon to the side to finish it off.

I put two rectangles on the sides of the bag and added a flower and a pearl to the bottom. I made the straps out of the same ribbon I used on the front of bag.

I love this stamp – Beth loves horses and riding so I thought it would work perfectly on her gift bag!  I coloured the bridle, reins and the numnah with pink to make it more girly!

This butterfly my mother gave to me. She used it on her birthday tin vases but after she was done with it, she thought I could use it on my cards! I love the colour and the gems!

I would also like to take part in the following challenges with my gift bag:

Southern Girls - Happy Birthday
Craft us Crazy - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything with Four Legs
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
Fairy Tale - Summer, Sun, Sunshine

This is my beautiful seven year old sister, Beth. She is such a wonderful little girl and I love her so much!

I hope you like my gift bag!
