Lawn Fawn April Inspiration Week - Handmade with Love

Fun continues today with a mini set: "Handmade with Love"!
This set is very cool for making tags for handmade gifts or simply stamping it on the back of your cards :)

Today I made a bag using the 12x12 "Smell the Roses" paper from the "Bright Side" collection. This paper is gorgeous! I wanted to use it dor something special and this is the perfect occasion.
Here it is, ready to be filled with a handmade gift :)

I took a bag, broke it and used it as a pattern to make mine. As 12x12 papers are double sided, the inside of my bag is coral and that's super cool! I really love it!

When I finished my bag I added a tag I made using 12x12 "Happy toughts" paper and a strip of the side B from the same paper, some Lawn Fawn yellow cord and a custom embellishment I made using a clothespin, a butterfly from "Flutter By" and washi tape. I hope you like it!

Such a CUTE bag! I love your choice of papers (my fave in this collection), and thanks for the idea to open a bag and use it as a template...very clever!

Oh my word! I just don't know what to say! Talk about a gift bag!! That's a gift just itself! Love all the embellies too, esp. the twine and clip :)
