Hi all, I have been having ago at making something a little different and made some gift bags, this is one of them.
The size is 6 x 4 (not including the handle) so it is quite large and only one piece of A4 card used, this bag is one that is made from white linen card stock, the topper is constructed with silver mirri card, white card embossed with my Cuttlebug 'Snow' folder, silver mirri card die cut frame from Marianne Creatables, some more snow embossed card and finally a Cuddly Buddly Snowman Digi coloured with promarkers. I added a white organza and thin silver ribbon tied together in a double bow finally some flowers and Viva Decor for some more snow effect around the snowman.  I used some silver tissue paper for the inside, it will be filled with goodies for the next Christmas Holidays.
A closer look at the front of the gift bag. 
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:

I thought that you might also like to see some new photos of Jess, she is such a fun little girl and makes everyone smile but what a little imp she is as well, lol. 

She has decided to help me out in the garden so when she sees me digging something up she does as well, my bulbs and new shoots are getting a chewing as well, lol.
I hope that you are all doing well, hugs.

Eileen said...

Lorraine this bag is gorgeous. Love the cute image you have used and the embossing and kie cuts work so well with it. Fabulous bow !!!!.
Love the pics of Jess she really does look full of mischief. Probably don't have to say this but be very careful of her chewing bulbs as so many are really poisonous to dogs, especially tulips. One of my dogs was really ill after chewing one but the vet said that as she was a big dog it had made her ill but wasn't lethal.
Unfortunately I haven't got dogs atm... can't get home 2 days each week so can't get one but my cat chews everything that grows. Stopped buying lilies didn't have poinsettias for the past 2 years and really watch her if she goes outside (she's a house cat).
OOo I sound doom and gloom :(...
Back to your wonderful creation... Love it

Nannieflash said...

That sounds familiar, Missy has a habit of picking up stones as shes walking along and even brings sticks home from the part to chew all over the carpet a real pain, luckily she has stopped digging up my plants but I suppose theres always this summer for her to change that. Shes looking so fit and so bright I carnt see why you wont have a very well behaved dog there she looks intelligent.
A stunning bag by the way. hugs Shirleyxxxxxx

Lorraine said...

Just popping back to say Thanks for joining this months challenge at Without Words.
