Bags of charm :)

This fortnight at Just Some Lines the challenge is Add a Charm.From now on only projects made with Just Some Lines images can be entered.But the good news is there will be a freebie image posted on the blog for the duration of the challenge for you to use!Just pop on over to Just Some Lines to find out all the details.While you’re  there don’t forget to get inspired by the DT’s creations.

For my project I’ve used the fabulous Lola by Just Some Lines.She’s been coloured with ProMarkers and has had a pearl added to the flower in her hair along with some Diamond Stickles on the gem on her ring – what else?!I got the idea to make this gift bag from the latest issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.Not sure if it’s me but I found the instructions difficult to follow and also thought the some of the measurements were wrong.Just as well I had a practice with some scrap paper and there was a template provided,so I took the measurements off that.Worked like a…er…charm!I used some pretty double sided paper from my stash.The chocolate piece on the flap is the reverse side so I made my faux stitching the same colour.The handles are grosgrain ribbon and I’ve embellished it with some pearl brads.The charm I cobbled together from a necklace kindly donated to me by DD1 🙂 I decided to turn it into a handbag charm.I’m thinking of presenting a piece of jewelry to my DD2 for her birthday in this 🙂
