Note Card Bag

Thought I'd share some of the projects from a recent training day.

My make n take was combined with my swap,
in that, I supplied instructions and supplies,
 to make one of these lovely bags, that's very popular at the moment.

I found fabulous instructions from Chiaki Haverstick,
which I adapted slightly.
We all tried a different way to attach the handles,
and different trims

See Jan's version HERE

I used Ribbon border Punch,
and attached the ribbon through holes made using a die
from Chalk Talk 

Then made some cards using SU Note Cards,
and Painted Petals

I cased all the designs from a blog hop some colleagues did,
see Kim's blog HERE,
and see her Hallett bag HERE,
it's a simpler bag, but stunning all the same,
and fab stamping and colours.

There were some lovely ideas,
I particularly liked folding Itty punched flowers in half to add dimension

The cards fit nicely in the bag, to make a lovely gift.
Sorry this is a bit picture and link heavy,
but I wanted to acknowledge all the designers.

I'm not mentioning the tooth, coz I still feel crap rubbish
am hoping the antibiotics (which are making me feel sick yuk) will help.....soon!

Thanks for dropping by,
hope this has helped brighten what is a dull rainy day here.

  5. These bags and cards certainly have the WOW FACTOR (and I hate using that saying cuz it's OVER-used) but certainly applies in this case!. Simply AWESOME!
