Birthday Baggie

It's a friend's birthday next weekend so I've been busy making her a card and gift bag.  I'll share the card in a day or two, but today I've got the gift bag to show you.

I've made a bag-in-a-box with double-sided pink papers and lace for the handles.  I'm planning to wrap her pressies in pink tissue and pop them inside with the tissue peeking out.

I made a scalloped base using a Lawn Fawn stitched die, and made some little reinforcers for the lace handles with the scraps.  The ribbon is a scrap I've had for years, but it seemed to match all the colours of the papers, so it's finally found a home.





Just so that you can see how deep it is, I've taken a pic of the view from the side:
