There will be chosen 3 winners for this! But now to my little project made for this special occasion. I was asked to use my pattern for the Little Bunny Gift Bag to create a new interpretation of it. Here is the result:
I chose to create a completely different bag. That fun patterned paper inspired me to use the postmark stamps from Papertrey Ink:
This time I didn't use a hook and loop fastener to close the bag, but these fun wood buttons and some baker's twine:
The possibilities are endless. You'll find the pattern for this bag, as well as all the other free patterns of this issue here. I had so much fun creating them and it is really easy. When I was working on my submissions for the call, I just looked around the house to find inspiration for boxes and bags. The Floral for You box on p.68 was inspired by the pizza box I found in our kitchen. Just look around, take your score board and start creating!
I hope you liked my project today! Be sure to hop on to Kristin K. Tierney! Can't wait to see what all the designers made for the hop! Here is the list of all the participants:
