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!
