Gift bag ....

Hi everyone, hope you're having a great weekend. The sun is shining here! I get to spend my day with 29 wonderful graduates and see their joy and of course all the beautiful gowns.  Over at Magnolia Down Under we have a fun new challenge. We'd like to see you decorate a paper bag for a gift. Well since I didn't have any paper bags I made a gift bag using 12 x 12 designer paper. I first saw this gorgeous idea from my teamie Kylie's blog. She is so talented and has such awesome ideas!  My papers are K& Company. The die cut is Spellbinders Grand Label.  Flowers are all hand dyed and are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  My good friend Corry was so nice to share that vine die  with me from Cheery Lynn. I braided some twine to make the handle.  And that flower was from an old arrangement that I saved from the dress, I love how it looks here with a gorgeous pearl brad centre!
Okay I am entering Midweek Magnolia - anything but card, Just Magnolia - summer colours, Simon Says Stamp - anything but a card.
