Gift Bag - Zebra

Okay yesterday I said zebra print is hot and since it is hot I had to do a Zebra Bag!

I always think that pink seems to go the best with zebra print, it's gotta be because of the color combo of white, black and pink. I knew I had some nice pink wire ribbon that I could use with the zebra print but I did have to go to another one of my stacks for the pink paper since there wasn't any in the Recollections stack of animal prints.  

After I got the bag done it looked a little plain and it seemed to need just a little something else. I cut a nice size flourish for the bottom and POW, that was it!

The stamp I used is from Stampin Up's Happiest Birthday Wishes, a set I got sometimes ago, and I love this particular stamp because you can stamp it several times and then punch out the parts and then layer. I can't remember the particular sizes but I think it was the 1" circle, 1 3/8" circle, 1 3/4" scallop circle and then 2 3/8" scallop circle. I pop dotted the top layer for dimension.

I think out of all my gift bags this one is my favorite!

  5. Now I REALLY love THIS bag. You can't go wrong with black, white and pink, with a little wild zebra print thrown in for good measure.

  6. I just read through a bunch of posts that I missed and I just wanted to say that your work is really great. I particularly love the Asian inspired card sets and these bags. I don't know that I'd be patient enough for decorating bags, but these are AMAZING! - KCM
