Peace, Love and Birthdays

Have you ever had one of those projects where everything went wrong? This was one of those projects. The funny thing is that it actually turned out much better because of the changes I had to make to fix the mistakes. There’s a life lesson in there somewhere!

The bag is cut from the gift bag on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I used my Gypsy so I could cut the handles off and make the bag itself larger. (It’s cut at roughly 11.5 x 22 inches.) The “Happy Birthday” is from the Potpourri cartridge. I cut it out of chipboard first. Then I cut it out of green paper and covered the chipboard.

The orange paper is from the ProvoCraft 12×24 primary stack. The blue and green are from The Paper Company value packs, Seaside and Mardi Gras. The ribbon is from the Michael’s dollar bin. I use the Cuttle Bug dots folder to emboss the paper. The ink and stamps are also from Michael’s dollar bin. (Love those!)

The peace signs were cut by hand. Oddly enough, I don’t have a cartridge with one on it. The flowers are from a Creative Memories micro punch that I think has been retired (though I’m sure there’s probably one lurking about on eBay). It has a flower, frog, fish and butterfly on one punch.

This is going to a friend of my daughter’s. Hope she like it, and you do, too!
