"Gift Bag"

Hello Blog friends, hope your weather turned out as good as ours did today.
Thank you for stopping by, I love that you take the time to that.
The morning started here with what looked like "winter" sunshine.  However as the day progressed it got better and better.  We had a beautiful evening although it did turn rather cool as the sun went down.......Oh! we can cope with that.  Just hope the sun remembers to rise again tomorrow.
Got lots done this morning till the door of the washing machine decided to jam shut with a load of washing still in and another waiting to be done.  Got the machine open eventually but could not get it to start another cycle.  Ended up "hand washing" the last load, thank goodness it was just a few things.  Will see what happens tomorrow, it might just go back to normal, it has been known to that in the past.  Looks like a new machine will be needed soon.
Today`s offering is a "Gift Bag" these have sold really well along at the Tearoom.  Elaine phoned to ask if I had any made if not could I do a few as she sold the last one the other day   I did have a few I made some time ago, they are now ready and waiting to go along to the Tearoom tomorrow.  Don`t  know if I have shown this one, sure as eggs is eggs I will have, sorry if you have already seen it.    It is easy to make the basic bag, it is the decoration that takes the time.

To make a Bag you need the Grand Dies, this is SB Labels One
I have used Grand Circles and Decorative Grand Circles but have to cut the bottom of the bag to get it to sit, I prefer Labels One
Two matching sheets of good quality card stock, this is from a Tilda Paper Stack.   I try to use double sided, you see the inside when it is made up.  I usually use 12 x 12 but you can make the bag using A4.  The strips of card left over when using 12 x 12 I use to make the Roses
There is just one rose on this bag using the matching card the others are pink card stock.
Roses made using SB Blossom Five Die
Leaves cut using SB Foliage Die
Organza bow, ribbon from my Ribbon Box

That`s it for today, off to have a look for some more card stock to make a few more Gift Bags
Thank you so much for calling in to see me today I really appreciate it
Bye for now
