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!
