Is it really Monday morning again? Being Monday it is of course Brag Monday over at The Graphics Fairy. Here’s what I’ll be sharing:
I shall also be linking this up with Crafty Boots where the theme is “Celebrations.”
I’ve made this as a little bag for confetti. My friend’s daughter is going to her first wedding where she ISN’T going to be a bridesmaid. I can identify with this as I never got to be a bridesmaid until I was married when, technically, I would have been a Matron of Honour. However, as it was my cousin’s wedding she allowed me to be a bridesmaid J During those years of never being a bridesmaid (the pain of it is all coming back to me!) I would have loved to have had something like this bag so I could “pretend” – something I excelled at!!
I have to thank Ros Crawford, AKA Mikey’s Mom, for drawing my attention to Creations by AR who has made a template available for this little bag. It was so simple, I shall be making more. I actually took a snapshot of the template (you can do this easily – the template is a PDF and this facility is part and parcel) and pasting it into Word. This enabled me to put the lovely Graphics Fairy image straight onto the template (you will need to resize it)before printing out.
The bag is super simple to assemble and once done it was just a question of embellishing. I’ve used my favourite pale pink ruffle lace to frame the image. I used a double piece of ribbon to make the little handle, then attached bows on either side.
I’ve added a little leaf trim, some paper blossoms and a punched butterfly. As yet, I haven’t added any glitter but might just pop on a smidge.
Here’s hoping for a great week ahead and it would be lovely to see you here again!
