Something Blue

Good Morning folks, it's Thursday again (how quick are the weeks flying by this year eh?) and we have a new challenge starting today over on the Cute Card Thursday Blog.  This week the theme is 'Something Blue' and our prize sponsor is Whiff of Joy Stamps.

For my DT project this week I decided to create some little bags which hold just two Ferrero Rocher chocolates rather than a card.   These make great little gifts for all sorts of occasions.

Here's a pic showing one of the bags opened to illustrate how the choccies fit in.

Each one is made from an A5 size piece of heavyweight paper or lightweight cardstock.  For the one on the left I used a sheet from the DCWV Nanna's Kitchen pack and used a sheet of blue cardstock from SU! for the one on the right.

I stamped one of my lovely new JOFY stamps from Paper Artsy on the plain bag, used Memory Box dies to cut out leaves and flower and a Marianne's die to cut the curly sprays.  The cute little sentiment images were stamped using a couple of stamps from a SU! set and cut out with the matching punch. 

Finally I punched holes in the top using my Crop-a-dile and threaded ribbons through to hold the bags closed.  I added a large gem to the centre of the flower just to give it a little bling.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my DT project today, do hop over to the CCT blog to check out what the rest of the DT have been creating.
