Butterfly Gift Bag - Control Freaks Blog Tour

Welcome back to another Control Freaks Blog Tour!  You should have just left the beautiful creation of Tami Hewlett - Swimming in Stamps.  She constantly blows me away with her creativity!

This month we are "Thinking Outside of the Box"...or in my case, outside of the bag!  I will admit, thinking outside of the box kind of made my head hurt...or maybe it's just the head cold I have going on.  No matter how you look at it, coming up with this fun little gift bag was the best I could do!
My original plan was to create a basket using the Springtime Impressions corner die, but my plan just didn't come together as I had envisioned it in my mind.  So, I went with Plan B and created a pretty overlay with the flowery die.  I love the white on top of the bright Grapefruit Grove.

It has been awhile since I've used the Springtime Impressions dies and Abstract Impressions stamped set.  I was sent these items to create display board projects for OnStage last year...I can't remember how many projects I created with them, but it was several! It has taken me a while to come up with some new creative uses, but I'm loving this bag and butterfly tag!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Grapefruit Grove, Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White, Watercolor Paper
Ink ~ Grapefruit Grove, VersaMark
Stamp Sets ~ Abstract Impressions, Piece of Cake
Other Supplies ~ Springtime Impressions Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies, Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder, Silver Metallic Thread, Glittered Organdy Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Mini Library Clips

Next up is the amazing talent of Melissa Stout - The Stamp Doc.  You don't want to miss out on what she has created today!
