"Another little Gift Bag"

Hello and welcome, glad you have come to visit me today.
I hope you like what you see and come back another day.  If you have a Blog, please  leave a comment I can then link back to see some of your work.  It is amazing the wonderful world of talent that is out there.  
John and Thomas were to be going to a Model Railway Show.  That was cancelled due to some of the roads to get there being rather badly flooded.  John brought Thomas along and they played upstairs with Grandpas Model Railway.  Robert stayed with his dad, they had a day together, then came along later for tea.  Robert will have day on his own with Grandpa on Friday.  Those boys really love one on one time with Grandpa.
With the boys up stairs that gave me time to "play".  I did some using up of  bits that were gathering dust on the Dining Room table.  I found a couple of 12 x 12 pieces of card stock, decide to use them to make a Gift Bag.  I have some small jars containing Bath Scrub, Body Butter etc:- which need some fancy packaging to sell at the Tearoom.
When I showed the bag I made for Audrey on 21st July, Jenny  mentioned putting my next one into challenge.  I will enter this.  Have you had a look at Jenny`s Blog??  She does some fantastic projects.  Not my style in any way but I just love what she does and admire all her wonderful work

Here is the bag I did today:-

White 12 x 12 Pearlised & Textured Card Stock
Patterned 12 x 12 card stock
Using the white card I cut just one of the largest SB Grand Labels One Die then cut this in half to make the bag frame
I also cut patterned card using the size smaller Die, also cutting this in half, stuck them to white pieces
I made the base similar to the base for my other Gift bags.  A step by step Tutorial can be found if you scroll back to 4th November 2012 
The flap for the bag made using Grand Scalloped Circles in two sizes.  Large in white and smaller in the patterned card to fit the top
Two 12" strips were cut and stuck together for the handle
Holes were punched to attach the handle to the bag with some fancy Brads
I found a couple of Die Cut circles, used them and another of the brads to form the clasp embellishment 
SB butterfly attached, I  added some pearls to the body
The flap of the bag is held to the frame with "Hook & Loop" dots

I hope all this makes some sense
That`s it for today
Thank you  for calling in I really appreciate that
Till next time
