Quick Bag and Card

I have been on a small hiatus and not doing much traditional scrapbooking. I have been working on wedding invitations for a friend of mine. I finally have my printer working but come Monday, my laptop is going to the doctors. But in the meantime, I thought I would share a small project that I did in thirty minutes.

I bought an egift card online and needed something to use as a gift bag. What better reason is there to use Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge . I made the bag in both black and pattern paper. I thought it would give the bag more stability. I then used my Cropadile to make a small hole in the bag. My butterfly embellishment had a wire knot in the back and required me to be able to put it through the bag so that I could glue it to the bag.

After making this very small bag, I made a very quick card with my Forever Young Cartridge. I have to tell you, that I can't wait to use this card more often. I bought it before I became busy with my other projects but I can't wait to use it on more projects. Believe it or not, the card is only three inches high. I told you it was a small box. I wanted to make sure it fit into the box so I had to make it that small. I don't know if you can see if very clearly but I added some small pearls to her dress. I can't help but put bling on cards, no matter how small the card.
