pretty packaging

That's what I've been upto. Thought I would decorating some gift bags. I find that having lots of stuff makes it hard to create cos I just never can decide what to use ha .
This week at papertake weekly http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.co.uk they wanted spots n dots. So I grabbed a couple of scrap pieces of paper to decorate my bags with.

Over at let's craft and create http://letscreatechallenges.blogspot.co.uk they are wanting ribbon or twine or both, I've gone with ribbon on my creations.
Over at stamping sensations  http://sirstampalotchallenge.blogspot.co.uk anything goes



I created my own epoxy type embellies using glossy accents. I created a cute shaker on this bag with some little silver sequins inside.


The oh hello stamp is su.


Hugs & kisses stamp is rachelle miller. The papers are from a really old anna griffin set. I really enjoyed decorating these bags and I think I'm definitely going to be decorating more. How great would they be for christmas. I wouldn't mind doing 24 as a countdown to christmas for the chloe monster with a little gift in each day. These bags are actually just the right size to hold a card too, so you could use these instead of an envelope. I have some smaller glassine bags which maybe better for the Christmas treats :) listen at me talking about christmas when it's only August ha! I love creating at christmas though especially with christmas songs playing ( little to early for the Christmas music yet though hehe)
