Gift Bag - High Hopes School Girl and School Bus


I made this little gift bag for my daughter's teacher after being inspired by my friend Heidi's gift bags which she made for her blog candy. You can find a tutorial here. I designed my bag on my Cricut and have stuck the front and back panels to a paper bag. You know I love these cute High Hopes stamps and you can find a great selection over at Silly Monkey Crafts.

Bag details:
Stamps: High Hopes School Girl and School Bus
Medium: Prismacolour, Sansodor & Paper stumps & Sakura Stardust pen for added sparkle on the window's.
Paper: Bazzill
Embellishments: Making Memories Button Brads & Doodlebug Gingham Ribbon - Blue Jean/Swimming Pool.
Equipment: Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Cricut Expression with George and Basic Shapes Cartridge

Have a great weekend everyone and I hope the sun is shining where you are.
Hugs,

Nikki, I have been trying to resist ordering more stamps from different companies (high hopes, whipper snapper and a lotta rubber stamps) ... my budget can't take anymore. You and Claudia make it so hard to resist with your cute and lovely cards. :)
