Decorated box and gift bag for a visiting friend...a tutorial


Decorated-box-and-gift-bag-set-for-a-visiting-friend

So last week, I got a message from a friend from India who said she was in town and wanted to meet up. Of course, I had to whip up a little something for her, right? 


I started with this kraft bag and box (corporate gift packaging with no brand logos are the best...*winks*).


I measured and cut a 12x12 sheet of patterned paper for both the box and the bag.


Then I adhered them to the bag and box.


Next comes the fun part of course...auditioning elements and decorating the box and bag.


Here is a shot of how they looks before the finishing details.


I finished with die-cut words and bling.


I love the baby blue with the kraft....so pretty!


I'm thinking the recipient likes them??? What do you think?

Ps: Some of you might recognize her...our bloggy pal Spardha from The Lazy Owl Designs. :)
