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


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 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. :)
