A challenge to create a gift bag. Wow ... I have given a lot of gift bags, but really, I don't usually decorate them. I mean, every now and then, I stamp a few things on a white one just because I don't want it to be so plain, but not much more than that. This week, though, the challenge on Just Us Girls was to create a gift bag - decorate it ... make it purdy!

I started with a plain green - lime juice green - gift bag.

I had a pink and green theme going on with several of my projects. I guess I'm thinking back to my preppy days in high school .... oh, wait! I was never a prep in high school. Hmmmm .... :)

The little card in the middle with the pink on it is a great place to put a little note to the recipient. The cake and balloon on there pop up, too, to give more dimension to the decoration.

My daughter loved the whole thing. Perhaps, I will use it for her birthday in September!

Recipe :
stamps - Celebrate, Birthday Cake Swirls, Birthday Party
paper - Bubble Gum, Lime Juice, white
ink - black
copics - R81, B21, 0, YR61, RV06, Y11, YG06
accessories - Cricut, SCAL, Birthday Party svg file, ribbon (bubble gum, lime juice), crystals, flowers

I know that there will be many beautiful and extravagant bags made for this challenge. I can't wait to see them!!

Have a great Tuesday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!
