Hi there, friends!  By the time you read this, I will probably be on my way to Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire!  Yippee!  I'll be sure to update you with some fun photos when it's all over.

Today is another fun challenge at Just Us Girls, and this week it's a 3D project.  The challenge is to embellish a gift bag--fun, right?!  You can use any products and any theme, so the sky's the limit!

I decided to make my own little bag out of patterned paper.  I found a tutorial on Pinterest and adapted it to make my bag 4 X 6 X 1.  I pinked the top of the bag and punched holes to thread some white silk ribbon through.

To decorate the front of the bag, I crocheted a flower and adhered it to a felt circle cut with PTI's Limitless Layers die.  I added two leaves cut with a die from Delightful Dahlia.

Behind the strip of blue patterned paper, I added eyelet borders cut from white felt.  Last, I added a sentiment from PTI's Fillable Frames #11.

Okay, I'm off to get some rest before the big PTI event!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you'll play along with us this week at Just Us Girls!
