It's an Envelope..It's A Bag...No, It's a Bagalope!
I found this fabulous tutorial over at Nikki's Blog and just had to try it. I didn't have a beautiful white recycled envelope like she had in her example, so I dug out the yucky orangeishy one to make mine. I have tried and tried to make one of these in the past but have never been able to get it just right. With Nikki's instructions I had NO problems at all. Thanks Nikki for such a great tutorial. I am a visual person so the pictures really helped me...bigtime. Anywho... this is my rendition of her bagalope and even with the yucky color envelope....I love it....This is going to be one of my favorite things to make when I need to give a small gift.
The papers are very old.. I thnk they were made by a company that has now gone out of business... Oh where is my memeory when I need it the most??? Flowers are all from my stash and were sprayed with glimmer mists.to give them some sparkle and shine. The stamp I used for the sides of the bag is an oooooollllllddddd Hero Arts stamp.. from 2000 or 2001 (I think). I used distress ink---brushed corduroy and swirls die from sizzix.
