Peachy Keen Challenge 26:: Gift Bags

Well good morning! This week Peachy Keen Stamps is having a fun challenge ~ its all about gift bags! Well my BFF daughters have a special gift for someone and asked if I could make them something to put their gift in! What PERFECT timing! Well of course I said YES! Their ONLY request was to make it PURPLE ~ their friend LOVES the color PURPLE! ! Well we ALL know how much I LOVE purple ~ NOT ~ but whatever these girls want ~ I shall do! I decided to do a flower ~ what girl doesn't LOVE flowers??

Well this is one of my favorite flowers PKS has! I use it a great deal but try to put a different spin on it every time I use it! This time I cut the petal base out 2 times in different shades of purple! The top layer I decided to bend the petals and some twine for the veins of the flower. I also added some twine around the adorable face but I wanted the face to pop a great deal! I didn't want to use a zillion pop dots. Well I have been re-organizing my craft space this past weekend and low and behold I found about 15 ATG empty plastic tape holders. Why I was saving them who really knows but boy what a GREAT way to add dimension! It worked PERFECTLY for the center of my flower face! I even cut out that CUTE little butterfly that comes with this die set. Used some Spellbinders ~ LOVE those things too. For the top of my bag I added the ribbon all around the bag then added some twine at the bottom ~ just to add a little more detail. Nothing would be complete with out a big bow! Again ~ I LOVE my big bows too! So hopefully the girls and their friend will LOVE this little bag. Friday's post will be the gift tag.

Sorry the bag is lying down for the picture! It is so hot here today with a very hot BREEZE! So the poor bag keeps falling over!

Materials Used:

Peachy Keen Stamps ~ "Funny Flowers Die" ~ flower, leaves & tiny butterfly
Paper ~ Stampin Up, Bazzill & Paper Trey Ink
Copic, Chalk and Sakura pen
