International Ambassadors Informal Blog Hop

Hi Everybody,

Its time to go Blog hopping again with the International Ambassadors and we really hope you will join in.  We are a group of designers from around the world who get together to share our creation with you once a month.

The theme this time was to make ... "Anything But A Card" ... and for my project I decorated a shop bought paper gift bag and little box

The dies that I have used are the   Labels One Card Front  and this is quite a large die ... but with some careful trimming it fit the front of my gift bag perfectly

I edged the bag with lace and added in a lovely satin ribbon.

I used some S
potty paper to edge the box and to create the flowers from Urban Blooms and then mixed and matched the sizes.

I added some pearly centres to each of the flowers

The label on the front of the card is Luscious Labels One  and the sentiment is stamped onto Labels One  and these are all designed to fit the card front die


Now you can go off round the world to visit the other Ambassadors and see what delights they have conjured up for you.

Linda Lucas   ... is in Australia
Yvonne van de Grijp ...  is in the Netherlands
Christine Emberson  ... is in the UK
Christina Griffiths  ... You are here !!

We all would love it if you left us a comment to let us know that you have visited and if you enjoy our work then why not become a follower so that you will keep up to date with each of us.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  17. Hi Christina, I love the idea of a dressed bag, it can really cheer someone in hospital as we can't take flowers, and if money it tight a beautiful bag will remain in the memory after the gift inside has gone. X Ros
