Bella Bleu Gift set .......

I have made a few of these beautiful mini gift bags since |I was at Julie's All Day class, I think this has to be my favourite though as it uses the gorgeous Bella Bleu papers!!  I have been "looking" at them for sometime now as I didn't want to cut them all up!!


The quality of the papers from Stampin' Up! makes them perfect for making 3D items like this as they are alomost like card.  I have used the bella Bleu paper for my bag, once I had cut out all of the pieces I sponged chocolate chip ink over them to give the edges a slightly "worn" look before assembling them. The button is from the Latte button colletion, tied with linen thread.



I have made a set of cards to put inside using some of my off cuts of  Bella Bleu papers (no waste here!!). The card bases are made from Kraft (soon to be Cake Crumb) card, I have used various punches and stamps to make each card individual.  The inside pocket is the perfect size for a gift card.
