I have bought a handmade necklace as a birthday gift for a family member and I didn't really like the plain ordinary box that it came in so.................................
I made a bag to match the necklace.
The pattern of course is by Amanda Yeh. I found a beautiful toning backing paper on a Carol Ann's Studio CD and printed it out on parchment. To the centres of the embossed flowers I added blue nailheads and crystal gems. The spotty chiffon ribbon is from The Art of Craft.
I enjoyed making this handbag as a personal gift - and even my son was impressed.
I am also going to enter this in the Allsorts Challenge - Anything But a Card.
