Birthday Post 2

I forgot to add these items to the previous post, the matching bag that held all of Judy's presents and below the card I made for her. The letter's for the bag were cut on my Cricut.

Happy birthday Judy

It's birthday time again, for my good friend Judy. I had lots of fun making the packaging, plenty of stamping and fussy cutting.

For the flower on top of the box, I stamped and punched it out it several times to layer up and make the flower appear larger.

Most of the items used are from Stampin' Up! The exceptions are: The long leaf die - Simon says Stamp exclusive. The fish tail tags and ordinary tag are from My Favourite Things.

Some Chrissy packaging

Having a little play around with some designs for Christmas.

The decorated bag has been made using the We R Memory Keepers bag maker and  paper from Kaiser craft. I have added a tag (MFT die) with tree and sentiments from Papertrey Ink.

The star box has become very popular and my friend Judy has written some great instructions on how to make it, see here. I have decorated mine with a Holly branch from Memory box and Merry Christmas from Simon Says Stamp.

Lastly, this lovely little curvy keepsake box from Stampin' Up! I cut mine from another range of Kaiser crafts paper. They have a great selection of Kraft based designs. I have decorated it with one of the tags that come with the curvy keepsake die and added pine branches ( Martha Stewart punch), sequins and a gold bow (Memory box die).
