A Fancy Birthday Bag


My granddaughter Lilly is 4 1/2 (almost!) and since her birthday is December 25, her parents are thinking of going to a "half-year" birthday celebration for her. That would be June 25. So I made a pretty little birthday bag for one of her gifts. She is a little princess...complete with shimmery gown, wand, crown and shoes! So I know she'll love the bling and lace and PINK!


Here is a compilation of supplies I thought I'd use...but that changed of course! Didn't use some of the cs and added more/different dies and stamps.


A close-up shows the intricate butterfly better...and the hand-made flowers.


The back of the bag is decorated more simply. To be honest, I think I like the back better!

Ingredients:
Paper bag of  kraft paper
DIES- Cheery Lynn Designs "Small Lace Faerie Queen", "Olive Branches", "Small Lollipop Cutie Fringe"; 
Spellbinders "Standard Circles Lg.", "Beaded Ovals", "Anglaise Lace"

STAMPS- Stampin Up "Happy Birthday"; StampingScrapping "Lacey Circles"

BLING- Ranger Liquid Pearls "Platinum Pearl"; Pizzazz Aplenty "Frosted Pearls"
ADHESIVES- Aleene's "Tacky Spray", Glue Dots, 3M Tape
Flowers, lace, markers...from my stash
