Sweet Gift Bag

Hello! Have you seen the tulle in the Holiday Mini Catalog? (Click for Flash Version see page 4) It's heavenly! It's very soft, 3-1/2" wide and scalloped on both edges! It comes in Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso. I am really loving creating with it! It's perfect to wrap around a gift, pinch into a rosette or gather as an edging. You get 10 yards for $6.95!

Here I folded the Crumb Cake Tulle in half and used it to line the top edge of the Fancy Favor Box die cut from a piece of Natural Composition Specialty paper. 

And that CUTE glimmering star? It's punched from the new Champagne Glimmer Paper with the new Merry Minis Punch Pack star! 

I also fancied up the bottom edge of the tulle "skirt" around the middle of the bag using some Basic Rhinestones. It's tied on the side with a piece of Linen Thread. 

Hanging from the bow are two tags punched from Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Jewelry Tag punch. The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler with a stamp from the Tiny Tags stamp set. 

I hope you enjoy today's project. The idea actually came to me suddenly, starting with adding the rhinestones to the tulle! I think you could open the tulle to it's full width and make a fun pattern on it with rhinestones!

I have more tulle projects to show you next week when my Pals and I "hop" on Tuesday! I hope you will check back then.
