Fall Fairy Gift Bag


Where does the time go?!!  I can't believe that it is October already!  It is just like overnight that the cool weather has begun.  I do like the cozy side of fall with all the pretty colors, cozy sweaters and blankets to snuggle in though :)

It is time for another challenge at Love to Scrap Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge is for Ribbons and Lace.  I had fun creating with this pretty fairy image from SLS Lines - Fairy on a stool.  You can get your own image to play with here.

My project this week is a little gift bag. I thought I would get away from my usual suspects for color and go with a fall theme this time.  I am really pleased at how it turned out!  I hope you like it!

The paper is from Bo Bunny.

I printed her on mixed media paper and water colored her with Distress Markers and a waterbrush.  I added a thin line of glue over her pearls and added fine gold glitter.

Behind the flowers, I added some loose burlap ribbon and added a bit or lace to the top (died with Distress Stain).  The flowers are die-cut using Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters die set.  I added some brown beads in the centers.  I 

I used a border punch from  EK Success for the edge of the flap and for the tag.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, and attached it with some thick twine.

On the inside ... a treat for that special friend :)
