Birthday Card

Good morning 

Today I would like to share with you a paper bag birthday card. 

First of all we took the bottom base of the bag and folded the corners in to create a 'tag top' effect and creased these folds well. Then we took the open edge of the bag and folded it in towards the crease where the bag bottom is, again this was creased well. The papers we used to cover this card are from Kaisercraft Charlottes Dream collection. When we covered the 'bottom' of ther bag the paper was cut square and then the corners were folded in on the paper bag. We pounched a small circle from Kraft card ans a scalloped circle from the patterned paper and attached these with a pink brad.

On the inside of the card we matted another sheet of the pink paper and then attached a sheet which had been punched with a border punch. This was only attached on three sides to reate a pocket. The tags were die cut with the sizzix scalloped tag die. On the left hand side we punched half a circle out and used this part of the bag to create a pocket which we put another tag in, or you could write a secret massage :)

The Birdcage stamp is from a fantastic range of stamps by Hampton Art. Gwen currently has these on offer in the shop for £16.00 for 16 wooden stamps. They are amazing value and stamp really well. Have a look here.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my cards.
