Can it really be Friday already? This week has just flown by.
with the theme...
Pink and Girly
A good excuse (like we need one!) to get out all those pretty papers and gorgeous embellies.
I'm not supposed to be buying any new craft goodies right now, but this Docrafts Westie stamp reminded me of my little Suzie, so I HAD to have it!
I started with the idea of making a tent card, but somewhere along the way it turned into a bag, to hold a gift card or cash!
Here is the tutorial for the tent card, by Beate Johns.
I took a 6 x 6 card and cut it along the score line, so I had a front and back piece.
The tent piece is 6" x 4", scored at 1", 2" and 3",
on the 4" side.
Folded mountain/valley style and attached to the front and back pieces.
To make the handles, I used 2 oval nestie dies to make a frame and cut it in half.
I couldn't find my velcro fasteners, so I just used a piece of bakers twine to keep the handles together.
For the inside pocket I cut a piece of card approx 6 1/2" x 3 3/4
scored at 3 1/4 and folded up.
I used a nestie to cut a little piece out of the top of one edge, so you can get to the gift card.
I decorated it with my DP and stitched the sides,then attached it to the inside of my bag with DS tape.
