Wedding Bag...

Hello,

I hope you had a wonderful Easter. The weather here has been very kind. Lots of sunshine and blue sky so it has really felt like spring this Easter. I have been saving my egg for tonight so I am really looking forward to some  scrummy munching and crunching! Hope you had lots of treats too.

Here is something that I made and was  published in Magnolia Ink 2. I made a Wedding Bag to hold a bottle of Champagne.


 I covered the box with Magnolia paper. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to cover the join at the back and added satin ribbon and a jewel.


I distressed the edges with vintage photo.


Here is a close up of the back detail.

The heart I made by downloading the heart template from my computer and cutting out some  heart shaped cardboard. I covered this with Magnolia paper which I had iridescent gold glimmer misted and vintage photo distressed.


I coloured my Magnolia images with distress ink pads and added star dust stickles to the flowers and train.



The top of the box I used circle nesties and lace. All of the flowers on the box have been vintage photo distressed and stickle glued.


I made a tag to go with it. Stamping the text and heart cluster with versafine sepia. The image was one of the teeny tiny ones I picked up at Magnolia's stand in November.


 On the reverse I used quickutz letters.




Well I wish you all a great week ahead. Four day week which is great!

Thank you so very much for visiting me and take great care.

love
