Mini Handbag Gift Bag

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Today I am bringing you the tutorial for the bag I made for the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop and the theme this month was Mothers. As it was Mother's Day in the UK last month I was not going to make a card so I decided to make a nice little gift box, well bag actually, a mini handbag. I designed this bag to hold 2 mini bars of Greens & Black chocolate but it could equally hold other littler treats of some jewellery.  I have used the beautiful Ornate Garden DSP to give this bag a bit of bling. I previously made it using the Boho Indigo DSP both of  which are on the Last Chance Products sale at a reduced price so do check it out.
