Hope you are having a good Sunday. Mine is going great. I have been playing with an idea I had in my mind from some time and never had the nerve to take into action.
I have been imagining from some time a gift bag decorated with fabric appliques and a coordinating card and tag. The girls at CPT gave me the final push I needed to bring this idea to life. First of all this is the Inspirational pic at the first ever challenge at CTP - Color My Week #1.
I could only feel joy cooking in that kitchen.
Since I am a bright color chic, I picked those bright colors you can see in the image
... look closely, they're there ;)
Here is a look at the full set:
This is the gift bag. It's made of fuschia and teal burlap and printed cotton fabric.
I cut the cute bird with my digital cutter adding some Heat and Bond Ultrahold backing for stability.
The gift tag is at the back of the bag and the blue panel is a pocket ;)
It has the perfect size to carry some snacks to work.
This is the coordinating card. It has a fabric flower to coordinate with the bag. I used the same bird file in a smaller scale to make cuts in paper for the tag and card. I love the fact that I can make the same cuts in fabric and paper. Imagine the possibilities!!!
Here are some fun details:
- I made the green button used for the bird in the bag with Polymer Clay.
- I actually had to fix the lower portion of the card. It was originally stamped
with some brown stitches and the sentiment. IT WAS HIDEOUS!!!
- This set has 21 french knots
- The eyelet in the tag is the first eyelet I use in more that two years.
- I just realized how easy is to make tags from scraps. I have to start making a lot!!
Here are more details and close ups:
OK, now I have to get back to reality and keep doing the laundry.
Off to my housewife duties, they are boring but still someone has to do it!!!
