Anything but a Card

Hi everyone – ready for a new challenge at Come and Get It?! 

I hope so because is it Anything but a Card this week.


I have used the Petite Purse Die and I love it!


I have created two little bags one in Basic Black which has been embossed and the other in Very Vanilla with some DSP paper.  Both have brads that I had in my stash - my favourite the Antique Brads and the mini silver brad


Here are my little creations:




Card: Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Mini Silver Brads, Antique Brads, Petite Purse Die, Candlelight Christmas Speciality DSP, SNAIL Adhesive



The little bag fits 4 mini Mentos lollies but you could add some tissue paper and place some jewellery for a special gift or maybe create some unique gifts for guests at a wedding.  The limit is just your imagination!




The only thing I would do different next time is to use some Sticky Strip to give some extra strength to the handles.


I would like to enter this little creation in the following challenges:

These are such beautiful little gift bags, so different but such an amazing way of giving a girlfriend or female family member something special. It's one gift packing that would never be thrown away. I love the embossed black one, it almost looks like a real handbag.
Thank you so much for joining us this time at Lexi's Creations.
Love and hugs
