I love the way projects can evolve while you're crafting - today's project started out as something completely different and while I was playing with the card stock, it evolved into these cute little tote bags which I instantly knew would be perfect to send out part of the thank you gift I sent to all of my customers who had shopped with me in January. Watch the video or click HERE to find out more about my monthly thank you gifts.
I have used the stamp set and dies from the Special Reason stamp set to decorate the bag. I started with some tone on tone stamping - I used a variety of colours as I was putting these together for my customers - these two use Pool Party and So Saffron and then cut a relief from the front of the bag - I love that these dies also do a relief, which I backed with Island Indigo and Early Espresso card stock respectively.
The ribbon for the handles is one I got free as a Sale-a-bration reward. This is a really gorgeous ribbon which the catalogue really doesn't do justice to - I know a lot of you agree having now seen it in person.
