Creative Cottage - Fancy Folds

Hiya folks!

Now that's a better start to the day, lovely sunshine! Can't say it is warm though, but it's better than yesterday!

Time then, for a new theme at The Creative Cottage, which this week is all about the folds. We want to see some fancy folding peeps! Doesn't have to be a card either. I made this little bag for my project, following a template I found on the internet ages and ages ago. Wish I could remember where now. . .

I used the 'Bags of Style' kit for this bag. Not much in the way of requirements, just the cardstock to print onto, and something for the handle and decorations.

For my handle I used up some old felt-paper I have had forever. This was attached using silver brads. For the clasp, I used the same felt-paper stuck on the back, with a sticky velcro dot at the front for easy opening. Then I have decorated with a fluffy feather and some of the flowers from the kit.

Just happens you could win these papers in the form of an easel card kit this week, and you could be one of our weekly favourites too.

Head on over to The Creative Cottage and take a looky at my lovely DT sisters' creations if you need more inspiration - see you there!
