A Little Gift Bag

Hello Blog friends and faithful followers, I feel so blessed to have you all calling once again.  Without you guys this Blogging would be a total waste of time.  I just love reading all your lovely comments, thank you.
During the week I was pointed to Becca Feecan`s Blog  by a dear friend who knows how much I love making Bags & Boxes.  Becca is showing a stunningly beautiful Gift Bag.  There will be Dies coming out in March to make the Gift Bag.  Me being Me  ..... I don`t have patience to wait that long.  I had a good old think about how I could make similar with the Dies I have.
Using a very old set of Spellbinders Dies I have made something similar.  
This year in our family we have LOTS of celebrations, Big Birthdays and Anniversaries.  My sister and I have arranged to have one big celebration towards the end of April to cover them all.  Hotel booked, Cake booked, Invitations made.  We have decided to make one of these little Gift Bags as a Table Gift for each of the ladies/girls.  I will make just the Box for all the men/boys, we will pop some Hand Made sweets in them.  They are just 2x2 so they will hold a small amount.
Here are a few I have made:-

Each Gift Bag holds one of these little Boxes
I still have lots to make, that will keep me busy for a while.
Card is from a Pack I brought back from the States last year.
SB Labels 10 Die set (largest Die) for the Gift Bag
SB Bracket Box for the little Boxes
SB Accent Die 
Die Cuts from the Box Die Set and some Wild Orchid Crafts Gems
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by
Till next time

You'll enjoy seeing how she does these projects, since you do your own so beautifully too. Hooray for you, at figuring out to make these darling little place holders for your female family members.
