Grey & White....................

a bag and a card to match (for my collection) so if I ever need anything like this at short notice - I am prepared!! (as if)!!!!

the reverse side of the bag................................
now I would like to say that I did the reverse bag on purpose but oh no - I reversed the paper when I cut the second piece (thinking I was being clever)!! but no.................
I have to say though that I like how it turned out and I made to tags with both sides of the paper to match.........
I am also really pleased with the card as I had no idea where I was going with it but just wanted to play and use the emboss folder..........................
made these with offcuts of the paper and can be added to the bag or card depending whether it is a male or female recipient............................

I have to say a big THANK YOU to Hazel (Baskets of Joy) as she has this die and I really liked what she made with it so she gave me the information along with a tip re:  cutting it out as I was finding that it was cutting through part of the score lines (tip was to add copy paper) worked a treat - Thanks Hazel and Patricia (Summer House Crafts)

I hope you like



  1. Love your bag Gail, that card works really nicely and your card is lovely too. I had to make two bags quickly last week for twin friends of Beth, cut out letters and put their names on the bags. They turn out beautifully and guess who forgot to photo them - yes me. They loved them. Hazel xx

  2. Brilliant, love the bag & card, perfect to have at hand for when "quick" cards and a bag for a gift are needed.
    I really like the bag Die, I borrowed Hazel's and cut out LOADS. I love them even just to pop a couple of bars of chocolate in to take when visiting someone.
