★ Darling Baby - Gift Bag-Heartfelt Creations

May 20, 2014

Continuing with the Sweet Lullaby Collection today with Heartfelt Creations.  I have a baby gift bag to share with you that i created.  I wanted to create a bag that could completely collapse for mailing purposes.  I love how this turned out, this Sweet Lullaby collection is real sweet and this was the perfect project.

the bag itself is designed using the grand labels from spellbinders along with the grand decorative labels and on the front of the bag i also used the Floral Ovals

now the tags in the bag, i designed so that the person who the shower was for, could gift these tags right at the shower, i printed on the back of them a thank you note. :D.  The tags were designed using the incredible stamps in the Sweet Lullaby Collection.

these tags were coloured with a tombow blender pen and chalk inks. I wanted to give these tags a vintage look with sweet subtle tones and they turned out fabulous.

 here is what it looks like when its collapsed.
