Digital Tuesday Challenge #10 - make/decorate a bag or box

Hello and happy tuesday!
It is time for another fun challenge over at the digital tuesday challenge blog. The hostess this week is Lora, and she challenged us to create - not a card this time around- but make or decorate a bag. I almost never do this, so this was challenging for me.

But I loved doing this project. I found a wonderful template over on SCS's technique lover's challenge forum for a butterfly bag. And what better image to use than this gorgeous digi stamp from Fred, She said. Isn't Emma with butterfly adorable?And she is so much fun to color.

The bag template was printed on white card stock and cut out. I then sponged the sky and grass. Emma was colored with copics, cut out and mounted with dimensionals. I cut the strip of grass and added it for a little more texture. The butterflies were punched out with a martha stewart punch and the flowers with SU's flower trio punch. To finish this bag off, I added stickles to Emmas shoes, a few tiny rhinestones, as well stickles all around the bag. The sentiment is from SU's SAB set "Yummy". This little gift bag is perfect for a gift card or a small box of chocolates.

Now it is your turn to create or decorate a bag or box, I hope you will join the Digital Tuesday challenge this week. My grafico is the sponsor again this week and they are giving away one of their adorable digi-sets to one lucky winner.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, hope you are having a wonderful day!
