This is another album page gift bag (like the project shown on the Ben Franklin Crafts website, http://www.bfcraftclub.com/ ). I wanted to show you that you can make an album page and use it to decorate a gift bag. The gift in the bag could be an album which would be appropriate and give the recipient somewhere to put the page (pop-dots make it removable from the bag). Not obvious from this photo is the fact that the green rick rack is attached to a tag which is in a pocket behind the elephant. The elephant is cut (Sizzix die) out of grey felt. The scalloped heart strips were made from computer paper (recycle those misprinted sheets) using a Fiskars paper edge punch. Photos can be attached to the tag or placed in the pocket.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Cheryl Miyashiro at the Hilo Ben Franklin Crafts make-it-take-it. She showed customers the cutest little projects and had lots of sweet samples of what can be created with Sizzix Hello Kitty die cutters. If you ever have a chance at attend a demo by Cheryl, don't miss it. Cheryl is just as sweet as her work. I was inspired by what I saw and I'll be working on some projects using the new Sizzix products I purchased as well as the complimentary freebies I received. Thanks Cheryl, and keep making your beautiful creations!
