Just Us Girls Challenge 13


The Challenge at JUGS this week: Make a project using a template of your choosing (bonus points in the world of good karma if you use a Kelleigh Ratzlaff template. Bonus challenge, make it something BLUE. (The blue is just for an additional challenge but not neccesary to play.) Click here to check out Kelleigh's templates
I did not have time to check out Kalleigh's templates ( close to deadline for posting) so I used  one that I found and downloaded sometime ago from this blog  of Mel's. She has a great many templates to check out.
I embossed the blue CS before I cut out with the template. I cut out the circles to make the handles. This was not part of the original template. Assembled the bag and embellished with a paper rose that my friend Rita made and gave me. I added a stem of green rafia, a bow of green ribbon and some ribbon around the bag. This is a very simple gift bag but it can be made more elaborate with more embellishments.
Filled it with candy to share with you.

Have a piece of candy while you are visiting!
Glad you stopped by.
