"Little Gift Bag"

Hello and welcome to my wee corner of Blogland.  Thank you for stopping here I really like when you do that.  If you have a moment to spare please leave a comment, that way I click on and get back to see what you are doing.
Another nice day here no sun but Hey! Ho! no rain so that`s a big bonus.
When Thomas was with us on Saturday he asked if we could stop at a shop so he could buy his Mummy a bar of chocolate.  Audrey a Midwife was to working Night Shift Saturday.  He told us Daddy always bought her a bar of chocolate to take with her for her break, he would like to do it for a change.  So having stopped and bought what he wanted (Grandpa paying) he decided he needed Granny to wrap them nice.

  Here is what we did:-
I had a large circle already cut and lying in my pile of "stuff!
We folded it with approx a 11/2" channel along the base
Made a little box base to place inside
A circle frame cut in half using classic circle Dies to use as handels
I made the rose while Thomas cut the leaves using the Cuttlebug
The handels and the rose show the reverse side of the bag card
Inside is a large Crunchie and a packet of Rolo 
We used a Velcro dot as a closure for the bag

Have not seen or heard from Audrey but I am sure she will have been delighted.
That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate it
