New discovery

It's the weekend YEAH which means that Paul will be home with me for a couple of days. Whilst I do like my own company it can get a bit monotinous day after day so the weekends are a treat. We are also expecting family to visit this afternoon.

I thought I would show you this little bag and card that I made some time ago. The bag started life as an envelope. I have used Pick a Petal stamp set from Stampin' Up!, one of the very first sets that I got in my starter kit.

Here are a few close ups.

The handle was created by first punching out an oval onto regal rose card. I then used the oval scallop punch to go around the hole and voila. Christiana if you need more explanation tell me and I will put some pictures up for you.
The flower was created by stamping out the image and then cutting it out. I used the small 1" punch for the centre of the flower.

And here is the tag, not very central I am afraid but there is plenty of space to write a little message on the back.

Do you remember some time ago I told you about the glue that I got on a card? I used the amazing eraser from SU and the card was saved.

As I was making the bag, I needed to something to rest the flowers on so that I could use my pokey tool to make a hole for the brad to go through and guess what was to hand, yep, the eraser.

Not only that but I used the large end of my embossing tool to rub the end of the petals so that they would curve slightly and the eraser was perfect to lean on as it is a bit spongy.

Christiana, I will be sending you one of these as I think that it is a must have, does anyone else want one when I put my order in next week?
I can offer free p+p on this item for any orders placed over the next week if you are local to me or there will be just a £1.00 postage fee for me to post this out to you.

Sorry its been such a long post, it has taken me even longer to type it all out bit by bit. Thanks for having a read and have a lovely weekend
