DD15 had a birthday party to attend today and she was rather disappointed that the gift she had bought came in a plain white bag. Needed to buy something nicer, she said.


Crafty mum can fix that, says I! (or words to that effect)

As the birthday girl apparently likes pastels and not bolds or brights (thank goodness for some sanity in the world), I got out some totally gorgeous paper from Graphic 45 and along with my trusty stamps, punches and dies from SU, gave that nasty ol' white bag a makeover!

Take a lookie:

Much prettier! I could have done more but as this operation took place at 6.00 am, I was pleased with what I got accomplished! lol

Materials used:

  • stamps - Happiest Birthday Greetings (retired)
  • card - very vanilla
  • other - gift bow tie, two tags die, scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1" circle punch, marina mist ribbon, calypso coral bakers twine, dimensionals, sticky strip
  • non SU - Secret Garden dsp by Graphic 45

Yay! Crafty mum saves the day!

Thanks for stopping by.
