Just Us Girls Challenge # 9

My project is for Just Us Girls Challenge. Our challenge was to make a gift container. I tweaked the bag one just a bit. I had this gorgeous bobunny paper.It has these beautiful snowflakes around the border and music in the center. I first painted the inside to match the purple color because they were white on the backside. I sewed my two pieces of paper together with silver thread. I punched the 4 holes and reinforced them with two extra pieces of paperfor each hole so they would be strong enough for the handles. My ribbon was white and to stark for the paper so I dyed it purple to match. It has silver glittered swirly design on it and is very pretty . I then put them thru the holes and made knots to hold them. Next fastened the box inside for the bottom. Next I used nestiblities oval to cut the purple and cream pieces to make a tag. I then used a MS snowflake punch and glittered them. I glued one behind and then used foam dots to make the other two at different layers and attached to the oval. I then punched small and large snowflakes in purple and vellum and glittered them. I then punched several circles colored edges and glittered them and added the snowflake to them and attached with foam dots. I took several pics so you can see up close what they look like. The camera doesnt have enough zoom to take a close up so you can see how pretty it really is.

A bit but your creations are wonderful and this one is so lovely, with the romantic curves, the colors, and the embellishing! Out-of-sight on the GRAND scale for sure! Hugs, Martha
