Every girl needs one ;)

Hi there!

This week's challenge at Cas-ual fridays is to make a gift or treat bag which includes a tag.

I decided to make a "designer" gift handbag!

{ bag measures approximately 9x9cm }







I cased an earlier project of mine ... long ago...before I had a Silhouette. Much easier this time & I added a few finer details!

I printed the designer paper from a  LV wallpaper found on the net. You can find the template for the bag here.
I opened the template in my Silhouette program and traced the design to get cutting lines. The "leather" part was cut separately and glued to the bag. I then added 4 gold brads, tags and tissue paper to finish it all off.

Perfect for a small gift like diamond earrings or a gold necklace *wishful thinking* !!!

Thanks for looking!
