Christmas Gift Bags.

It's the last challenge of the year for the Christmas Card club to show our latest makes. Rita chose the theme of Christmas gifts and I came up with the following idea.

Gift bags for containing small items  such as chocolates.sweets, jewellry etc.

I made 7  in total in 3 different colourways but showing only 3 here today.




 I followed a tutorial by Tonic (as it is their dies I have used to make the box) but I did make one modification on the handles which I reinforced on the insides  so using 4 handle shapes and not just the two in the tutorial. You can find the link on the Tonic Studio site/You tube..  The Flowers were made using a Poinsettia die by Ultimate Crafts. First cutting out in green and then several in red and fussy cutting to get the different layers. I used stickles glue and beads for the centres.
I will be around all your lovely blogs as soon as I can.

A perfect way to interpret this challenge with something so pretty and so useful as well. Clever you. I like the different colors you've used for each 'gift' and what a nice way to present your gifts. I like the way you've added the little extra detail with the trimmings too. Hope you are feeling much better now. Merry Christmas. TFS & Hugs
