Paper Pumpkin ... Feb '14


  Today's post is using Feb '14 Paper Pumpkin.  
The gift bags!! I LOVE them, they are better then ANY store bought bag!!

**WARNING.... WARNING** I made this one my own right from the get go.

The seam binding ribbon is not thick enough to just knot at each end so... making the ribbon a little longer and tying them together you are able to use any ribbon you want. 

You can even stamp on the bags..the Flowering Flourishes worked perfectly.  Adding my favorite punch, petite petal and a candy dot you get a great flower.  The pearls added just a little more pretty.

Sneaky right??
The lace ribbon and flower are from the Artisan Embellishment Kit that is available on the Clearance Rack.
The gold baker's twine goes beautifully with the gold glimmer paper used on the back of the "welcome" circle.  The clothes pin comes with the Paper Pumpkin kit, but I could have used gold ones here too (in the occasions catalog).  

This bag is special for me because I have a new niece due any minute... Remember my little butterfly girl?? She is getting a sister..

Seeing as the card was made prior to receiving this Paper Pumpkin I used the same colors and a few of the same elements to match.  SSssshhhh, don't tell Mindy!!

Okay enough teasing here is how it turned out...

Just beautiful!! Perfect for that new little girl!!

Well, I hope you are enjoying your weekend and have a Great day getting Crafty!!
