Gift Bag to Enjoy

Flower Parcel Tape

With so many challenges  out there I've been feeling overwhelmed trying to decide what ones I want to do. But it's never a question when there's a PTI challenge since I have such a huge wishlist!  Today's 6th anniversary contest is to create a wrap, tag or gift packaging inspired by a photo on Pinterest or another site.  With time short I just checked out Nichole's "Special Delivery" board & found this wonderful kraft, brown & white package.  Immediately I thought of my Background Basics: Medallions stamp set I just used for the last card.  Since I have lots of kraft bags saved from when a stamp store used to put purchases in them, I decided to make use of one.  My tag qualifies for this week's MIM Diecut Double-Up--yah, 2 for 1!  PTI announced today that they're going to carry Zing ep, which I love & have quite a few colors already, including the Chestnut I used today.  The medallions were pretty easy to line up so I could get the length strips I needed.  I've really gotten into felt flowers so I grabbed my brown & white felt & die cut a Spellbinders Blossom Three & the PTI Snowflake Flurries.  The layers are glued together with fabric glue & a button tied with dark & light twine embellishes the center.  For the tag I did the Double-Up with Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles & the tree from Trendy Tree Tops.  I didn't layer it because I wanted the kraft bag to show through.  The sentiment is from Lovely Layers.  I had such fun putting this together & I'm really happy with the finished product--can't wait for an occasion to use it!  Hope your weekend is going well. My thoughts are with those of you digging out from the East Coast blizzard--we're not complaining about our rain!  Thanks for taking time to check out my blog.
