Xmas free zone today

My share today is the little gift I made for my very good friend Jeanne, whose birthday is today.

We have this thing where we give each other lottery tickets on our birthday, rather than "presents" as such, but this year I wanted to make her a little something as well, so I made a coordinating bag with little 3" square note cards inside.

Close up of the front of the card.  I used "Timeless Portrait" dsp as the background of the card and used the "Fun Flowers" Big Shot die for the flower that I used as my focal image on the front.

To secure the lottery tickets inside,  I used the "Lace Ribbon Border" punch, which I love, to hold the tickets in place, this coordinates with the strip on the front of the card, the only difference is that I used "Very Vanilla" on the front and "Marina Mist" cardstock on the inside.


The front of the bag uses the same products that are on the card, I just left off the punched out strip.  The handles are made from "Very Vanilla" stain ribbon,

As you can see, the 3 x 3" square cards fit perfectly inside the little bag and they are just right to write a little note or include with a gift.

Back to Christmasy thoughts I guess.....  xx
