Challenged By Joanne Wardle (3)

This week on the Paper Artsy blog, Joanne Wardle has been showing us crafty ways to wrap presents.
I am still thinking about the triangle idea (watch this space), but I couldn't resist the bagelope.

I used the tulip from ELB03 for the bag, stamping in white pigment ink, applying watercolour pencils on top. I then softened with a moist brush.
For the tags I used 2 stamps from ID02.

The top of the bag has been die-cut with a Spellbinders border die, which conveniently pierces 2 holes, perfect to thread the twine through.

Thanks for coming by,


  1. Oh oh oh! I love it! Love the die cut top. Really love the stamping. Totally thrilled to have inspired this. I shall definitely "watch this space"!

  2. Beuaatiful, that single flower is just perfect for this.

  3. Lovely Bag and tags! Border die cut is wonderful.

  5. I'm working backwards through the entries, love this of yours too!

  6. lovely - great shading on the flower ! x

  7. Simple mais efficace, ton petit sac Kraft fait son effet ! Et j'adore ces tampons moi aussi, c'est une bonne idée de les intégrer à des réalisations de noël car ils sont très élégants... Bisous, bonne semaine :)
