International Bazaar DSP Gift Bag....

Brrrr, what a chilly old morning it is here in Buckingham, and thankfully it's lovely and sunny but no sign of snow! I hope you all stay safe and warm.

I brought a few presents for my Mum for Mother's Day here in the UK last Sunday (10th March) and being a crafter I wanted to put them in a nice gift bag, so I made one... come and have a look.

I used 2 sheets of the International Bazzar 12"x12" Designer Series Paper (or DSP for short) and went about choosing the size and shape I wanted for the gifts I was putting inside....
I grabbed my trusty Simply Scored board and came up with a perfect custom made gift bag, cool huh?!
I didn't want the run-of-the-mill sentiment, but as soon as I flicked through my stamp sets I knew it had to be the "Forever with You" set.... I just love that sentiment!
I was really pleased with how it turned out, and Mum loved it too (which is all that matters in the end!)

If I get enough response and comments left to this blog entry I may be persuaded to make a video tutorial to show you how to make this gift bag... so go on, leave me a comment :)
