Beach Bag for Team Chat

Hi there

A couple of weeks ago, some of our merry little team (Myself, Sara, Joanne & Hazel) met up for a natter and a play at Sara's house.  Unfortunatley, Chrissi couldnt make it but I am sure we'll all meet up again soon.

Hazel hadnt met Joanne or Sara before, but it didnt take long for us all to get on like a house on fire.  Lots of excitement talking about everything thats happening in the world of Stampin' Up!, craft shows and Convention (have I mentioned, I am going to Convention this year...?)  Sorry - you will get a little tired of me mentioning it soon!

Here is a picture of the gift bag I made for each of them - its a really cute beach bag.
The main bag and the handles were made from two sheets of A4 cardstock so its a really nice size.  If you would like more details on how to make the bag, just email me.

To decorate the beach bag I used a strip of Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper, mounted on a mat of Old Olive Card.

The flower is made from the Fun Flowers die, with each layer mounted on dimentionals.  A couple of die cut leaves from the Leaves #2 die were added to the back of the flower before it was secured to the bag.

Cardstock - Bashfull Blue, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red & So Saffron.
Designer Series Paper - Greenhouse Gala
Accessories - Big Shot, Fun Flowers, Leaves #2, Round Tab Punch, Gold Brads.

Thanks for stopping by.
