Have a "Teatally" Magical Day !!!

This fortnight's challenge at Top Tip Tuesday is Birthday Gifts.  I've made a little gift pouch by taking the packaging from a fancy packet of teabags apart, scanning in the flattened packet to my computer and reducing it in size so that it fits onto a piece of A4 cardstock.  I then printed it out and used it as a cutting template for this smaller version, which I cut out of shimmery bronze cardstock.

I also printed the owl image onto the card before I cut out the template so that it was properly placed, but then printed it again onto white card to create a second layer on foam pads.  I also printed the image again but much smaller, and including the sentiment 'Have a magical day' for the tag.  Because of fancy shape of the packet and tag, I've kept the rest of the box minimalistic with just some liquid pearls and stardust pens for accents.
