Christmas '15' Series Frayed Florals and Festive Foliage Decorated Gift Bag

Posted on November 25, 2015 at 10:55 AM

Today's project using the Frayed Florals and Festive Foliage Template, makes use of two flower designs and all of the foliage designs (ivy, holly, mistletoe, fern and pine cones) from the template.


The layered poinsettia uses flower one and two and the small white flowers use flower one from the mini sized sheet. I've cut these with handmade papers, to give a lovely rustic effect. The holly is also cut from handmade paper, as the rough texture works well with this project and takes up my distressed ink around the edges nicely. The ferns, ivy and mistletoe are cut from different shades of green, with a little leaf vein detailing added to the ivy with a white gel pen. The pine cones were added at the end, with some hessian ribbon, a couple of flourishes, red adhesive pears for berries and a stamped tag.


Don't forget you can get one of the flower designs in one size as a sample sheet on the Member pages to try and a smaller gift bag to use if you don't have one to use!

I think a decorated bag like this is really a gift in itself!

Beautiful gift bag that would hopefully be treasured and repurposed by the recipient.
