I have not had a lot of time over the last couple of days but I love playing with my new Papermania Portobello Road papers so much that I thought I would try something completely different - making gift bags! I got a pack of plain brown paper bags and set about decorating them. I have only done two so far but I am going to do lots more and use them this year (with the Queen's Jubilee and the Olympics as my excuse) to put birhday gifts in. On the one at front I have put paper and ribbon strips down the side and on the one at the back I have pleated the paper down the sides. A bit of red, white and blue tissue paper to wrap the presents in and it's all done and dusted.
I may not use the British flag on all of them but I really like the way these have turned out.
If you do look at my blog, I hope you will leave me a comment. Thanks for looking.
