New Technique - Double Pocket Bag...

Monday's Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is called the New Technique Challenge where you learn how to do something you have never tried before! In my case - that is A LOT!!

Today there was a tutorial on how to make a double pocket bag. I tend to cringe at new things - but I read the tutorial and then read it again and it really wasn't too bad - in fact it was super easy!

I broke open my package of Berry Bliss designer paper - can't believe I haven't opened it before now - and just followed the directions! - something I am getting very good at!! LOL!

The flowers are cut out with the Cuttlebug flower die and stamped with Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms stamp set. Some of the flowers in that set were designed specifically for the Cuttlebug flower dies. Cool, eh?

I stamped them with Versacolor Tea Rose ink and then the outside of the flower in Colorbox Dark Brown.

I tied in some handles with Papertrey Ink's Sweet Blush twill ribbon, and taped the ends with double sided tape.

I cut and embossed the chocolate chip cardstock tags with the Nestabilities Tag set and found some rub-ons from my ever-luvin' loaded stock of scrappin' "stuff"!

I thought it turned out quite cute if I do say so myself!! You could use it as a gift card holder for sure although two regular size cards will fit in it too and two!!
