It's A Wrap Blog Hop

Welcome to the It’s a Wrap Blog Hop hosted by Cool Beans By L.B. Do you like to receive gifts? How about give them? Well this hop is all about the outside…the wrapping; Gift bags, boxes, baskets and more. There are 22 wonderful stops on this hop and we hope you will take some time to stop in and see everything we have created for you.



You should have arrived here from, Amy from Amy’s Digi-Scrapshttp://scrap-pix.blogspot.com/. If you are just finding our hop in the middle you can go to the beginning at Cool Beans By L.B.



For my project I made a gift bag with my stash. A few weeks ago I posted about a baby brag book I made for my mom. I decided to make a matching gift bag to put it in when I give it to her.Here is a picture of the book and the gift bag together.
The bag was recycled from one I got at my last dentist appointment. It was a nice white handle bag and only needed to be dressed up a bit. Here is a picture of the bag "before".

I used my Cricut Imagine and the Nursery Tails cartridge for the front of the bag. I chose the image I wanted to print and cut in layers and chose fit to page.  Everything was pop dotted and then added to the front of the bag.
For the green and pink background I used the Storybook cartridge and embossed the green with the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. Once that was done I used the Tags Bags Boxes and More cartridge to cut out a tag. Then I added a couple of Imagine - Nursery Tails cuts to the front of it.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my project today and following along the hop.


I am offering some fun blog candy on this hop…
There is a Creative Memories corner rounder, some flowers and brads, some wackytac adhesive for vellum, a cuttlebug cut and embossing folder, a mini chipboard album and a few other things thrown in. I may come across some other things to stick in the box as well. In order to participate I would love for you to be a follower and leave a comment on this post. I will draw a random winner on Sunday night and post next week.


Thanks for stopping by on this fun hop. Your next stop is…TX Scrapper Mom http://www.txscrappermom.blogspot.com/
