MMSC22 - Wood Gift Bag - Blog Hop

Welcome to Midnight Madness Challenge #22! For this weeks sketch I decided to do something different. There are no rules that say our project has to be a card so I changed it up!

I used my Cricut and Bubinga Wood Paper to make the Gift Bag. I layered it up with more Wood Paper - Douglas Fir and Sitka Spruce. Finished the edges off with Copper Metallic thread.

I used Prima's Wildwood Natural Flowers as the main image on the card. I used Black Leaf Swirl Pearls as the background embellishments.

I finished off the handle with more of the Wildwood Natural Flower collection and some raffia I had on hand. And the good news....I've already given it away! The recipient LOVED IT. Yeah!

We are having a HUGE blog hop! Lots of fun!! Lots of prizes!! As you can see...you have 25 chances to win a prize! How many other blog hops offer that many chances and that many prizes??? AND, if you post this badge on your sidebar and leave a comment on Priscilla's blog that you have it on your blog...she will enter you a second time!!! Even more chances to win great Halloween Candy! Mark your calendars and be sure to join us October 16th bright and early!

WOW Sue, your bag is amazing! This is one of the prettiest gift bags I've seen, just bringing all those beautiful natural things to life. I just love this. The stitching, wildwood flower, swirl pearls and the little addition on the handle just finishes this perfectly!
A stunning creation!

Change is good, at least it is here. Cute bag - great idea and very natural, a very unique look with lots of texture, very refreshing Sue.

I'm working up to it though.

Sue...when I saw this on tuesday...I swear....I thought it was a purse and I was thinking to myself...now wouldn't I look cute carrying that to a Jacksonville Jaguar Game!!! lol How imaginative and stylish this is. I swear it looks like a purse I would love to own. It so stricking and attractive. What an exquisite creation.
